Des Pawson's Knot Craft and Rope Mats : 60 Ropework Projects Including 20 Mat Designs, Paperback / softback Book

Des Pawson's Knot Craft and Rope Mats : 60 Ropework Projects Including 20 Mat Designs Paperback / softback


This wonderful collection of Des Pawson's personal ropecraft recipes combines an expanded and now full-colour collection of projects from Des's popular Des Pawson's Knot Craft, together with 20 new and brilliant mat designs. Readers can learn how to make 60 different ropework projects, including mats, bellropes, key fobs, fenders and doorstops.

Along with fascinating titbits of nautical history as background to many projects and guidance as to how they can be the starting point for many other items, Des gives step-by-step instructions on how to put these knots together to form the finished article, and advice on the size and lengths of the materials required - just as you would find in a recipe book.

Full-colour illustrations, clear and practical tips on technique, and photos of the finished products mean that this book is ideal for all abilities.

With this book to hand, readers will have the confidence to start making desirable objects with knots because, as Des says, this is the book that makes all other knot books work!
