Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Des Pawson has been a professional ropeworker for more than 25 years. His passion for knots goes back to the time when, aged 7, he was given a book with some knots in it. He has studied knots and sailors' ropework ever since. Over that time he has built up a number of recipe books containing the information required to make each item, whether it is a key fob, fender, mat or knife lanyard. Des Pawson's Knot Craft contains a selection from those recipe books, giving the reader the basic designs, illustrating which knots and sennits are used to make them. Here is a step-by-step breakdown of how to put the knots together as well as the size and lengths of materials required. Many books have been published on how to tie practical knots but not many books give help in putting the knots together to make an object.

Synopsis:

Des Pawson's Knoft Craft 2nd Edition is a wonderful collection of recipes for making useful and attractive items from rope. Expanded for this edition with seven inspiring new items, the 35 projects range from key fobs, belts, and napkins rings to binocular straps, bellropes, and fenders.

-Each rope work project provides:

1. Step-by-step tying instructions, helped along with clear diagrams and links to other projects.

2. The exact material required, the size and length needed as well as the different knots involved.

3. Fascinating tidbits of nautical history as background to each item.

An illustrated Tips of the Trade section presents some handy tools and helpful advice for working with rope. This is certainly not just another knot book — it's the book that makes all other knot books work
