This book is a crochet stitch dictionary by Melissa Leapman, a famous crochet and knitting pattern designer who has been supplying crafters with patterns for more than a couple of decades. The book has an entire section devoted to edging patterns, and it includes many other types of stitches too. One important note about this book: None of the edgings have corners. The patterns work best for finishing projects where you need a straight-across edging: sheets, pillowcases, boot toppers, sweaters, etc.
