Mirror Image Scarves from Leisure Arts is a book that gives you crochet patterns for creating beautifully symmetrical scarves. The mirror image technique involves crocheting half of each scarf at a time, working along opposite sides of the foundation chain. Reflecting the finest architecture of nature and man, these eight scarves by Ruthie Marks borrow their shapes from rolling hills, babbling brooks, intricate bridgework, and ornate arches. All designs are for Easy skill level, using yarn weights from medium to super bulky.
Ruthie Marks has been hopelessly in love with crochet since learning how after retirement. Her innovative designs have appeared in numerous books and magazines, as well as on the websites and promotional materials of major yarn manufacturers. Favorite projects are scarves, cowls, shawls, ponchos and other wraps, simple garments, afghans, and other household items. Ruthie and her husband, Roger, live off the grid in a solar-powered home he designed and built in California.
