When I look at a knot book, I ask myself, "Can I learn from it?". Many knot related texts contain instructions, diagrams, and photographs of the same knots, but can often show them from a different perspective, which may aid some in learning and figuring out how to tie them. Looking through the book and trying out a few of the tutorials, I found the answer to be, "Yes, I can learn from it.".
There are some familiar tying methods in the book and some newer designs some folks in the online knot tying community might be acquainted with. There are several patterns I have not tied before, originally shared by a few well known names among some of the knot tyers that are members of many different online knot tying groups.
I'm more of a 'visual' learner, and the good photographs in the book allowed me to learn how to tie the designs, even without reading the accompanying text instructions. I look from one photo to the next to see what changed with the cords and...
This book is badly mis-title. It's about knots and weaves, not specific objects to make- which is how I define a "project". The book contains maybe FOUR descriptions that couple be called a "project" based on that definition. I will give it props as appropriate- the photos and step-by-step instructions are clear. But describing a weave and then saying "this could be a bracelet, necklace, or strap" (which is repeated about ha;lf the time throughout the book) does not define a "project" in my mind. I bought the book based on the positive reviews of other customers- I cannot understand how anyone looking to make things from paracord would find this knot-guide a useful project book of actual things to make and how to use them. I'll be getting my money back for this book. Steer clear!
There are some very nice original knots in this. Thank you for making this book. The digital (kindle) version has small pictures but you can zoom. A couple of extra steps but everything is there to make nice projects.
