Crochet Geometry ~ Lark Crafts ~ Book Review


Crochet Geometry
by Shannon Mullett-Bowlsby

ISBN: 9781454709190
Publisher: Lark Crafts
Publication Date: April 2016
RRP: £16.99

Available direct from GMC Group.

    

The book is designed so that it will appeal to
both the first time and experienced garment maker.


The book takes you through the whole process of how
Shannon came up with the ideas and designs.
It then takes you through which garments are going
to be the best for you to tackle.
There are patterns that are easy, intermediate & experienced.



Shannon takes you through everything from choosing
the right yarn for the project, gauge & blocking.


The book is then split into sections:
  • Shrugs
  • Cardigans
  • Pullovers
  • Wraps


All special techniques are detailed in the book
and include step by step instructions with pictures.


The patterns are in both written and chart form.
There is also a chart key at the back of the book.


The designs in this book are amazing.
I haven't seen anything like it.
The designs are so modern and stylish.
The brilliant thing is they are wearable and achievable.
The geometric shapes really make an impact.


The thing I love about this book is the fact
that the designs are in so many sizes.
As a slightly large lady myself I struggle
to get patterns that really fit and flatter.
The patterns go up to 5X so most people
will be able to make a size that fits them
or the person they are making it for.


the designs speak for themselves.
They are brilliant.
I can't wait to make some
to build up my wardrobe with some
beautiful and unique items.


This book is well worth the money!
