For centuries, everyone from sailors, fishermen, and cowboys to explorers, hunters, and mountaineers have known about -- and relied on -- the indispensable knot. Many of them also knew that the diversity of knot crafting was limited only by the imagination. In this classic guide, George Russell Shaw reveals the unlimited potential of the knot as not only a basic tool, but as a beautiful work of art.
Filled with easy-to-follow and accurate instructions on creating scores of useful and decorative knots, 193 hand-drawn illustrations will guide you in creating:
* Braids * Angler Knots * Japanese Knots * Lanyards * Celtic Knots * Lassos * Flower Knots * Macram#65533; Knots * Tassels * Slings * Netting * Shoe String Knots * Barrel Knots * Toggles * PLUS a slew of knots for wrapping packages of all types...and so much more!
