For each project, illustrated step-by-step tutorials and clear, straightforward instructions show readers how to master a variety of different knotting techniques. Each project concludes with suggestions for 'other ideas to try', providing readers with a wealth of further inspiration and encouraging them to explore new creative projects with the skills they have gained.
