SUMMARY This is a project book centered around the advanced technique 'Selfclosing Mock Ring(SCMR)'  effectively the technique used in needle tatting to make the rings. They chose to focus on one motif shape, the triangle. Instructions are well broken down and supported with lots of illustrations and patterns to practice with. You get fairly clear color pictures of each sample with hand drawn diagrams, and pattern instruction are well broken down and in symbolic notation. You can do some surprising things with SCMR, and they provide some solid designs that illustrate this very well. Focusing on triangles and all the ways you can put them together to make larger pieces is quite versatile, and this book does a great job of illustrating this. I was really happy I bought this book.
