about this item

Simple instructions on how to tie over 100 useful and decorative knots

A well-tied knot is at once a practical tool and a work of art. With names like "hangman's noose" and "wagoneer's hitch," knots have a rich history of usefulness and an aesthetic appeal all their own.

From the boat to the backyard, The Everything Knots Book provides simple instructions on how to tie knots for any situation. Written byRandy Penn, a member of the International Guild of Knot Tyers, this handy guide walks readers through the basics and offers myriad suggestions for creative uses of these knots.

Mr. Penn shows readers how to:

  • Choose the right rope and knot for the job
  • Tie knots safely and securely
  • Create decorative knots for clothing and accessories
  • Practice knot-tying through games and exercises

Packed with easy-to-follow instructions and clear illustrations, The Everything Knots Book makes learning this useful skill fun and easy.

Approaching knots as tools, this hobby book illustrates how to tie knots for stopping the end of a rope, joining ropes together, making loops, fastening ropes to objects, binding objects, decoration, and specific activities. Penn, who edits a knot newsletter, also describes the properties of different cordage and the best methods for protecting and storing rope.
