From the first day that I saw Mirror Image Scarves, I have been wanting to try some of the patterns inside. I’m quite fascinated by scarves of all shapes, sizes, and stitch patterns. The colors and interesting stitch patterns on the front cover enticed me to try this book for myself.
There is some gorgeous design work by Ruthie Marks in Mirror Image Scarves, published by Leisure Arts. The book includes 8 patterns for scarves. All of the patterns contained inside use worsted, bulky, or super bulky yarn so they work up very quickly and use between 150 – 400 yards of yarn. One or two skeins will suffice for any project. Since the colorways throughout the book are so vibrant, I was hoping to get my hands of some of the yarn used when I went to crochet my first scarf and I am always happy to see books use easily accessible yarns. Four of the patterns are made with Lion Brand Heartland, and one each uses Red Heart Medley, Caron Simply Soft, Bernat Softee Chunky, and Bernat Roving.
The book also includes some patterns that make great gifts! I’ll be using several of these scarves for friends, family, and teacher gifts during the holidays. And I can get a jump on my holiday gift-making by starting early. Most of these scarves can be made in an evening!
There is a camera icon occasionally throughout the book which directs to video tutorials for possibly challenging sections, however, the patterns are rated easy. Even an eager beginner could crochet the patterns inside. I appreciate that the patterns are clearly written and easy to follow. Click the photo below for the Amazon link for this book.
