I have recently revived my interest in knotting and wanted to expand my limited skills. This book has everything I could wish for in it and more all clearly and simply explained, great diagrams, photos and projects to get you up and running. Advise on tools and materials, suppliers etc.. Buy this book now and settle in for the long winter nights with something interesting to do and have something to show for it. Cheers, John

I borrowed this book from the library and kept renewing it until someone else wanted it, at which time I decided I'd better buy it myself. It takes you through basic knotting to more complex projects, braiding and macrame. A large portion is then devoted to kumihimo, which didn't interest me initially, but does now. The 'simple' knotting has fascinated me--using just one or two strands and fingers--and, though it's taken some patience to learn and work through, I've been very please with the results. I've always liked what I've learned from Dorothy Wood's books, and this one is no different. The instructions are clear from start to finish.

(I am just starting with macrame)
Many interesting knots and ideas. But the book itself is a bit sloppy. on the first knot that i couldn't decifer i followed the author's step by step directions only to find out that one of the pictures showed some serious error that made the knot impossible to acomplish. i retried it a couple of times on my own and got the knot, it's not a big deal, but this example just illustrates the feeling i got from the book - it wants to show a lot but it doesn't really want to teach much.

and just a detail for someone who might be repulsed by the earings and bracelets shown in the cover. the items inside are even uglier than the ones in the cover. everything plastic sparkling stuff. but the book shows some good ideas that can always be adapted to other materials. Still, if you are a begginer, go for "Macrame Pattern Book" from MARCHEN ART.

I love this book!
I didn't have a clue before this purchase but wanted to learn and this really is a bible of techniques. Not too many projects but that is okay as the techniques get the creative mind going. Definitely a fab buy.

It showed you how to start knotting and went through to showing you how to make some pieces that they had used, I went through the book quickly to get an idea of what I had purchased and I was happy with what I had seen as it inspired me to get creative !!
