Crafting By Concepts: Fiber Arts And Mathematics

From the editors of the popular Making Mathematics with Needlework, this book presents projects that highlight the relationship between types of needlework and mathematics. Chapters start with accessible overviews presenting the interplay between mathematical concepts and craft expressions. Following sections explain the mathematics in more detail, and provide suggestions for classroom activities. Each chapter ends with specific crafting instructions. Types of needlework included are knitting, crochet, needlepoint, cross-stitch, quilting, temari balls, beading, tatting, and string art. Instructions are written as ordinary patterns, so the formatting and language will be familiar to crafters.

Crafting by Concepts was purchased as a gift for my wife. One of her hobbies is knitting & crocheting. Upon receiving this book, she has thanked me several times for the gift. She knits a lot of different items and likes to experiment with different techniques and this book appears to have broaden that window of creativity. She likes math and enjoys its applications.

I got this book and Making Mathematics with Needlework for my daughter's college graduation gift. She adores both mathematics and crafting and squealed with joy when she opened the box. Even if she never actually does any of the projects in the book, she is translating the concepts into what she *does* craft: knitted lace. I'd recommend this book for people who love crafts and mathematics and who have the background in reading technical papers.
