Ruthie's eight designs are very creative: some remind me of borders I made in projects a long time ago, others have a lace-like quality to them, while others still are reminiscent of my landscape in Utah with scallops mimicking the high mountains. You are bound to find a design (or 6, in my case) you must make!
Ruthie Marks has a long history of designing crochet projects and writing crochet pattern books. Thus, her instructions are clear, precise, and yield projects looking just like hers. The cool symmetry of the mirror image construction in her latest book lends a modern feel to crochet scarves. The best part: once you memorize one side, the second one is crocheted like a breeze!
Oh, there is a fantastic feature in Mirror Image Scarves: the camera icon next to a stitch reminds us we can check out Leisure Arts technique videos if we get stuck - yeah - making this book a perfect gift for budding crocheters, too.
