This wonderful collection of Des Pawson's personal ropecraft recipes combines an extended and now full-color 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 tidbits of nautical history as background to many projects, Des gives step-by-step instructions on how to put these knots together to form finished projects, and advice on the size and lengths of the materials required--just as you would expect from a recipe book. Full-color 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 in 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!
