This book starts with the history of the braided rug in the USA then goes on to provides details on planning, tools, and techniques. There are many pages of color pictures of existing rugs along with a color chart to follow. Many of the rugs are innovative in design and colors, but there is a good choice of more conservative designs, too. I found this book to be so useful, that, after checking it out of the local library 3 times, I've finally put in an order to buy my own copy.
