More About What Knot? by Geoffrey Budworth; Richard Hopkins
 
 
 
Overview
Anyone can tie knots. Learn just one or two and you will be glad you bought this book. Learn ten and it could make a difference to your life. The ability to tie a few basic bends and bindings, hitches, loops and lashings, is an invaluable skill. Knotting is a fundamental but fascinating process, being an art, craft, science and philosophy, all rolled into one. This book contains over 150 knots and splices which are illustrated in full color throughout, accompanied by step-by-step instructions. When the knot involves two or more ropes, different colors are used to clarify how the knot is actually constructed. Each chapter is organized by knot type: overhand knots, half-knots and half hitches; figureof-eight knots; bowlines and sheet bends; crossing knots; wrap-and-tuck knots; and mavericks and mutations. Each knot has useful colored tabs on the page which indicate to what activities they can be applied, such as Boating & Sailing, House & Garden, Outdoor Pursuits, Caving & Climbing, and/or Crafts. The book also includes helpful information on cordage types, tools, etc., together with a comprehensive glossary of terminology.
