About the Book

Here it is ,the ultimate answer top all those knotty questions. Here you can see just how to tie knots, splices, hitches, bends and decorative knots. This book spans the entire range, from the simplest tying of shoe laces and neckties to the most complicated and time-consuming decorative stopper knots. All of the traditional sailing knots, as well as those only recently recognised and specially designed to counter the slipperiness of some modern synthetic ropes are included, with easy - to - follow instructions and detailed illustrations which use a second colour to show the most intricate construction fo the knot. The New Encyclopedia of Knots describes the nature and properties of the different types of rope available, as well as explaining their uses, and highlights those which are best suited for particular knots.
