    Combining math and crochet

    Dragon Curves, Golden Ratio and Fibonacci Sequence all sound like you are in math class. But never fear, you are about to crochet them, not work on a geometry problem. I often take a pattern and add my own crochet ideas to it but Ruthie Marks has given me one more way to add to a pattern and it is so easy. Dragon Curves are done on those mesh squares you make from a chain one, skip one, double crochet in next chain patterns. Just double crochet (or triple crochet) on the post, then on the chain space and then up the next post to make this very fluffy and filling crochet stitch. I can¿t wait to try it. The Golden Ratio is something I have been doing my whole life and just didn¿t know what to call it. Use a 1/3 to 2/3 ratio, Ruthie¿s numbers are a bit more exacting, to create a color pattern and you have the Golden Ratio. While Ruthie explains it in much more detail and with more expertise, this is the basic idea of the Golden Ratio. The Fibonacci Sequence is a number scale 4, 7, 11 and 15 for example. Again, Ms. Marks does a better job of telling you how to create this but this is the scaled down version. The book is written in language like someone is actually teaching you rather than with a technical feel. I could relate much better to her explains of how to create each stitch than in other crochet instruction books. It has a homey, down-to-earth feel and that makes me think it is something that I can learn. There are seven or eight patterns for each of these three stitches. Scarves, rugs, wall hangings and doormats will shown off your newly learn stitches. Different types of yarn or cords are also used so you can expand the materials you use. And the colors are alive and bright. There are plenty of color photos and graphics and each pattern has a skill level indicator. The end of each section has a page of challenges for you to stretch what you have learned. There are plenty of useful items in this book and three new stitches so grab a copy and get stitching!
