Superb Beginners Chinese KNots Bible

This is THE best basic Chinese knots book I've ever used. The diagrams are very very clear and easy to follow. The author also provides a lot very useful knots tips and how to put together beads and combinations. My 10 year-old girl learned how to make button knot from this book when I tried and failed from other books. This 80 pages simple book has done amazing jobs to show you the very complicated Chinese knots the easy way.

Wonderful Book

I initially borrowed this book from the library but after reading it I knew I had to have a copy of my own. The instructions are well written and easy to follow. The photos are beautiful as well. I also purchased this author's book on Celtic Knots at the same time. I make hemp jewelry and needed some new inspiration, this book will certainly provide it.

Complex, Beautiful Knots Demystified

This book is a beginner's dream introduction to knotting. Complete with clear, concise step-by-step directions and large color photos of each step, this text is sure to be an enjoyable resource to anyone looking to learn how to achieve beautiful knot work designs on the first try. I personally am applying many of the designs to some hemp work, so the contents are easily modifiable to your own creative ideas. There are "patterns" you can follow but these are secondary and the book focuses on showing you the main techniques so you can apply them however you like in your own works.

"Cream of the Crop"

This book is far superior to any of the others. This is the only book that gives complete instruction. Many of the other books do not want you to know their "trade secrets", so they leave steps out. But, this lady is a true teacher and she gives of all she knows. I began knotting to increase my mental and physical dexterity after an auto accident. Not being able to accomplish something can be very depressing. Susan Millodot takes away all the mystery! Remember that any beautiful art takes a great deal of time and effort to learn. You must be patient with yourself. And, you must practice one thing at a time. And, practice every day. If you do this, and follow Susan's greatly illustrated directions, you will be achieving better tension and more beautiful knots as time passes. And, you can do it fairly quickly. My hat goes off to a very encouraging and sharing teacher, person and author! I am so very grateful that she wrote this book and wish I could thank her personally.

Chinese Knots are knot hard

This is an excellent book! I just got it in the mail and I've been reading, the directions and pictures go well together and it's easy to understand. Excellent book! And the pictures are BEAUTIFUL! I can't wait to see what my first necklace turns out like!
