I liked this book so much I went out and bought a copy. The charts are wonderful and very helpful! If you have an imagination, you can add these borders to just about anything or make them into other things by combining them.

Good selection & instructions.

Very simple designs. Also ALL of them would have looked ten times better if the finished examples were blocked. That is the most basic finishing step, and it not being done makes me wonder about the experience of the author.

This is a fantastic collection of borders for any serious crochet designer or even the person looking for something more than the usual crab stitch hem.
