This book gives a broad introduction to decorative knotting. While the knots shown are not as numerous as in an encyclopaedic work like The Ashley Book of Knots, it is a substantial book and the knots here are described in detail with step by step directions and photographs. The photographs are generally clear and the instructions helpful. Knots covered include flat woven knots (great for coasters and mats), braids, plaits, sinnets, covering and netting knots (including hitching and whipping), floral and star knots, turk's heads (a comprehensive chapter on these woven knots used both as cylindrical covering knots and as flat knots, which includes instructions for a pineapple knot), spherical and lump knots, traditional Chinese and Korean (maedup) knots. Supporting information on materials and tools, and covering some of the history of knotting rounds out the book. There are a selection of suggested knotting projects, but mostly it's left to the reader's imagination how to use the techniques illustrated. A delightful and useful introduction to knot craft with some new ideas for even the experienced craftsperson.

A superb volume of decorative knotting ideal for the more skilled knotter or even the beginner to see what can be achieved with practice, superb pictures thru out and descriptions to help you decide which knots to have a go at tying some are more challenging then others but that is why I purchased the book in the first place, as you can only improve your knotting by trying harder knots and different knots all in all an excellent book I would recommend it to anyone into knotting.

The photographs are clear and the instructions helpful but i found that some of the detail in the picture gets lost using dark string on a dark tube to demonstrate the spanish ring knot on page 234 it would've been better with white string on a dark back ground and some of the pictures seem under exposed ie; not enough light. But saying that if i was to loose this book would i invest more money in getting another one, well YES of course i would very good book indeed

Excellent content but diagrams would have been easier to follow if different coloured cord was used. In some of the photos you can not see the pattern as it all merges together.
