4.0 out of 5 stars Useful information 24 Oct 2007
By J. COMER - Published on
This Dover reprint of a much older book has useful instructions for making braids, lanyards, sandals, bracelets and decorative trim, even a handbag in silk. Recommended for people who want to do something useful with fiber and cord.

5.0 out of 5 stars You cannot find another book this thorough! 29 Aug 2013
By Heather Rose - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was searching for a book that included visual and detailed instructions on various kinds of multi-strand braids and the techniques involved in creating something that looked complex, but was fairly simple to do. There are many knot books out there, as well as some braiding books - but the braid books are usually for friendship bracelets or hair and the knot books are more simple knots with specific uses. This book has sections on flat braiding and knot braiding. It is easy to follow, and gives written instructions in addition to several diagrams of finished weaving!

I was very excited to receive this book. I am now braiding a lovely cord out of several colors using seven strands, and I could not be happier. I just wish this book were more widely available! It would have saved me a lot of waiting time if I could have found it at a local book store.

I would recommend this book to people who can synthesize written instructions with visual diagrams; it is not for young children, as the finger coordination required would be challenging when combined with trying to learn a new skill from a book that is mostly text and illustrated in black and white. Once the reading skills are solid (as long as they can multitask well), they should be able to focus on coordinating their hand movements and sorting out the appropriate strands for each next step.

5.0 out of 5 stars Braided Best 8 Mar 2014

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I was looking for. 4 Jun 2014

Lots of info & background on these techniques. Also, good drawings. This was originally published in the '70s during the macramé craze.
5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, helpful, good illustrations 11 April 2014
By C. Good - Published on
_Braiding and Knotting_ by Belash is a good introduction to braiding. It covers flat braids, some simple 4-, 6- and 8- strand braids, and some macrame knotting as well.

Instructions are included for some simple projects to make with braided items, such as a hat and a lanyard.

This book was originally published in 1936, and does not have the photographs readers may be used to from more recent books about braiding and knotting. However, the illustrations are excellent and in my opinion are better than most photographs in conveying the construction of various knots and braids.

A very good book for beginners.
