This comprehensive guide to knots, splicing and decorative ropework is suitable for beginners and enthusiasts alike. Over 100 knots, divided into their conventional classifications, are explained in easy to follow sections, starting from the foundation knots and progressing through stopper knots, bends, hitches, and loops and nooses.
The book then features a section on elementary rope splicing for stranded, multiplait and braided ropes. Then, to round off the skills learned in earlier chapters, the book ends with a taste of macrame and decorative knots, featuring Turk’s heads, braiding, hitching and more.
The step-by-step illustrations are easy to follow and accessible for people of all levels of experience, and the accompanying text is instructive and informative.
Each of the featured knots is accompanied by a list of the uses it can best be put to, from fishing to climbing, and the introductory chapter on rope and other materials and equipment details everything you will need to know to begin knotting.
