The ideas for how to use Chinese knots are quite well presented and documented. Unfortunately, you must own the book Chinese Knotting to complete many of the designs (as several of the knots used are NOT in Fun with Chinese Knotting). The thread paths for the knots are quite clear. My biggest complaint is that there is no instruction on how to HOLD THE THREAD! Pinning these super complicated knots to cork board is just not feasible every time you want to tie the same knot. I doubt the originators of the knots pinned them out according to diagrams...there must be a way to hold the thread and have "under/over" patterns around fingers for most of the weaving patterns. It is a shame those were not shared. It was especially disappointing that the truly Giant Pan Chang knots weren't diagrammed, just shown and then we are told "tie a pan chang knot." A 4X4 thread square is diagrammed, but some of the pictures clearly show 8X8 knots.
This book has neat ideas, good diagrams, and nice exposition. It requires Chinese Knotting to complete patterns and an ability to expand on an ordinary pan chang knot.
