Ern ideas I bought this book and it is by far the best instruction book I have ever seenThe pictures are great the illustrations are very clear *I DID NOT REALIZE THIS WHEN *did not realize this when bought it but it was originally written by the Japanese Macram Association in 2011 and then translated and published by St Martin s PressIn addition to instructions for 70 knots with samplers there are a lot of patterns for belts purses bracelets necklaces amulet bags household items and other things I am very happy with this book Because I had only minimal knotting experience think old school friendship bracelets I wanted a book that has very clear instructions This is definitely that book I did find the layout of the book a bit odd Unless you have memorized every symbol they used for every knot you ll be flipping back and forth between the front of the book and the pattern you are working on Some of the samples in the book were shown on like colored backgrounds making it less than ideal while you re trying to examine the details The photos of the completed projects are not near the instructions which can also lead to a lot of flipping back and forth between the sections of the this bookStill despite sometimes being awkward to use this book the instructions are the this bookStill despite sometimes being awkward to use this book the instructions are good that I d still recommend it The book has clear instructions for each knot and step I do like this book very much but the publishers should have published it spiral bound so the book lays flat when trying to follow the instructions To make this book lay flat to keep it open to be able to follow the designs you need to pretty much break the spine of the book When this happens the pages can come loose I removed all the pages and had it spiral bound This is the way the book should be to start with. Tons of expert tips like how to set up your work board or how to keep track of the cord ends for less confusion Thirty three projects featured in the book range from simple ewelry like a classic friendship bracelet and watch straps tocomplex ones like bags and baskets.
