Crochet Geometry: Geometric Patterns to Fit and Flatter Reviews
An excellent book of crochet garment patterns that are suitable for crocheters of all skill levels. There's a broad range of patterns with sizes from small to 5XL for EVERY pattern. It's so refreshing to be able to look at a page and say yes! my size is listed. No guesswork.
Fabulous designs! I buy a book if there are one or two patterns that really knock me out. But this one is inspiring me from cover to cover. These are designs you can adapt to what you want, at least I will. Love the stitches used, the combinations of stitches, and may or may not use the same yarns or even the same shapes. Because these are based on rectangles, the only fit issue I see is the sweater with sleeves--you'll have to take some care there. I haven't been crocheting in 15 years or so, didn't think I needed anymore vests, shawls etc. but this book has brought me back. I hate those old fusty thick crochet designs but this is fresh and updated crochet, very appealing! Can't vouch for accuracy of text and pattern, haven't tested that yet.
I had hope this would be a refreshing change with updated styles but it's just a bit more of the same and the use of such tiny stitches and lightweight yarn wouldn't keep my short attention. I applaud the photographer but the way the instructions are laid out was confusing for me. If you start with numbers and sections stick with it and then proceed to explain how to continue to the next section. I was totally confused on how this book was edited for pattern reading. I can read charts but don't care for the breaks in written patterns to charts and back. It'll be on my shelf...
Diverse and creative patterns if you are looking for something more challenging. Great for any crochet book collection!
Outstanding patterns, the tips and the manner the patterns are written in make them very do able. I consider myself to be an intermediate crocheter but I landed in a pattern for advanced and had to have that one. I'm having no problems at all.
I love anything by Shannon Mullett-Bowlsy. First saw him on craftsy videos. I like the schematics he includes as well as the materials and directions. I think his instructions are easy to follow.I would not hesitate to purchases anything he does.
This book has many lovely patterns for sweaters, wraps, vests, etc. that do not require extremely pricy yarn to make. Written directions also contain graphs for those who prefer them. Sizing covers a wide range, making them usable by all. Where I live, there is a big need for items that can warm you in the mornings and evenings, but are easily removed during the heat of the day. Many off these patterns fit that criteria and are quite lovely in design. I'm looking forward to crafting a number of them for personal use!
Gorgeous patterns in this book. I purchased it after seeing it in the library. I think anyone would enjoy this book.
