"An innovative collection of 40 stitch and 12 garment patterns from best-selling author Kristin Omdahl, The Finer Edge demonstrates various techniques, construction methods, and versatile applications for crochet edgings. While crochet edgings are customarily used to trim or finish blankets and garments, designer Kristin Omdahl treats you to both traditional and novel new ways to expand your use of edgings. You will learn how edging patterns can be used to create entire fabrics, reformatted to make individual decorative motifs, reverse-engineered from existing fabrics, and even used to create three-dimensional designs. Focusing on construction techniques for edgings, The Finer Edge is divided into separate sections based on top-down, sideways, and bottom-up methods to help guide the reader. Though there are 12 project patterns that highlight the edgings, you'll be inspired to creatively mix and match within each edging's section. Also included in this gorgeous book are charts, illustrations, and photographs of crochet swatches and a pattern collection that includes multiple sizes, including plus sizes. Discover innovation at its finest with The Finer Edge. "-- Provided by publisher.

I've checked this out twice because I made the Pompeii Mobius Cowl. I was even able to connect on Ravelry with the designer because I had a question. I'm a fan of her designs and own another of her books.
