Reviews - What do our customers think?
Pleased with purchase  Mar 3, 2008
I bought this book before reading the reviews. After trying the 7 point afghan and failing to catch on after two days, I decided to do some research on the net. Needless to say, I found that I was not the only one having trouble. I did tackle the pattern with renewed zest and finally had the "hit me in the head" moment where everything clicked. I've been happily hooking away my afghan and can't wait to try some of the other patterns. This book is definately worth a read, don't be intimidated by geometrics! And the patterns are great as well. I do recommend letting the inner crocheter out and go with what you already know and understand!
Geometrics, a New Way to Crochet  Feb 14, 2008
This is a different kind of crochet book designed to stimulate the reader to create designs based upon geometrics. It has some interesting information and is excellent if you like to design your own colors when creating a crochet project.
The star is beautiful  Dec 25, 2007
I too bought this book for the star afghan on the cover. I've made my afghan in this pattern using a reverse ROYGBIV- starting with a bright yellow center working outward to green. It's beautiful (so far, not quite finished). The instructions are complex - until you realize it's just a ripple pattern worked in the round! It's a new way of looking at crochet patterns (the math) - I'm pleased with the book and will probably go back and use another of the patterns in the future.
A great mix of creativity and education!  Sep 6, 2007
Ruthie Marks has created a wonderfully creative and provocative alternative to an everyday "how-to" book. She provides enough basic information to create the design she features in the book, then adds thought-provoking extras so the reader can "take off" and create their own iterations of the pattern. I especially loved her explanations of geometric theories in relation to design patterns. They added such an interesting dimension to her crochet lessons - a true measure of creativity and forward thinking.

Thanks, Ruthie. You did a great job. Your book is a winner!
Thinking Person's Crochet  Aug 13, 2007
This is not just a pattern book- although it does have patterns. It is an inspiring primer on concepts that will improve all your projects, as well as give you something to mull over while you stitch away. The author clims to be math phobe, but her explanations are clear and inspiring. It reminds me most of the Plummer's excellent book "Woolly Thoughts". I found this book to be a real step forward from crochet books that just reel out line by line instructions. It is inspiring, clearly written, and has plenty of food for thought. While all of the projects are not to my exact taste, each project is an excellent illustration for the concept being taught. I will probabaly make most of these, but better yet, I am inspired to strike out on my own with the ideas I learned from this book.
