Publisher Comments:

All knots serve useful purposes, but many of the more complicated ones also create appealing shapes and interwoven textures. Knot tying is not just for those interested in sailing and other outdoor pursuits; many people find it as absorbing as solving a crossword puzzle or reading a good book. The Complete Book of Decorative Knots contains easy-to-follow expert instruction in how to tie over 80 elaborate knots, ranging form the simple to the more complex.The book is divided into five sections of different elaborate knots - lanyard knots, button knots and globe knots, Turk's heads, mats and hitching, and chains and plaits. Every section contains background information on the history, lore and accreditation of the knots featured. Color illustrations guide you step-by-step through the stages of tying each knot. As well as being attractive, the knots featured have a wide variety of practical uses, such as for hammocks, door mats and bell pulls. A useful glossary explains the terms and techniques used in the world of rope and knot tying.An invaluable source book for both the novice knot tyer and those wishing to expand their expertise, this is the ideal reference for those who wish to pursue this pleasurable craft. (7 3/4 X 10 1/4, 160 pages, photos, color illustrations, charts, icons)
