Product Description


Once there were three books on knot tying, now there is just the one compendium. If you already have these books this is not a new one, but if you don't then this is a cheaper way of getting them and a chance of learning an almost lost craft. One introduction suffices for all and you don't need much to get started, which is always heartening. Some cords, rat-tail or thronging, a few beads with large holes, a cork mat and the sort of general items most crafters already own; this is not a book that encourages the tyro to invest in a lot of superfluous kit. Helpful staged diagrams show you how to progress with each knot as well as staged photographs, giving you the best of both worlds. Each knot is accompanied by a project using it and some beads and findings, so you can make some attractive and unusual jewellery inexpensively. There are a few other books on the market but this is the best one I've seen for beginners. If you want to take up a new craft that doesn't cost too much but requires some skill then this is a good one to choose.-Myshelf.com This 192 page soft back book is a compilation of three previously published books by the author. Throughout the knots are explained in detail with clear, step by step, coloured diagrams which are easy to follow. The book contains more than 40 projects for you to try including necklaces, bracelets, earrings and brooches. Each project is illustrated by an excellent colour photograph of the finished product. At GBP14.99 this represents very good value for money, and is a significant saving on buying the three books individually. It is suitable for both the beginner and more experienced maker of beaded jewellery incorporating knots.-Bead Society of Great Britain

5.0 out of 5 stars knotty subject 14 Jun 2012
This is a good compilation of three previously published books. If you don't have any of those, this is a good buy. The book has a high standard of production with excellent how-to instructions and 500 step by step photographs. It is easy to follow. More than 40 wearable pieces.

I bought this book to make myself jewellery.I have made several of the items in the book and have not been disappointed with the results.I have got another Suzen Millodot book which has featured some of the same items in both books but this book has alot more interesting knots to try .I would recommend this one to others.Some of the knots look impossible but the end results are fantastic.Very clear instructions with every item and you could make several items in an evening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Knotting 29 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Recently taken up braiding and was keen to try making jewellery combining knotting - found this book and read the reviews and as I was able to look inside the book online and see some of the work this was a great help in deciding to buy the book. I was not disappointed as it is full of photographs, detailed diagrams and instructions, which is very helpful. Well worth the money and a great addition for any beginner to knotting. Would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and clear 31 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I ordered this to supplement some Chinese books on knotting a friend had given me, (I don't speak Chinese so the instructions weren't a lot of use!) and it is really good! There is a huge variety of knots, all with clear diagrams and instructions. I would definitely recommend it.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is really easy to follow. Though at times my fingers don't get the thread going where it should be, (Me not the book).
The pictures make it easy to follow and with some practise I am sure I will get it .
