I purchased this book without previewing it first, and for once I'm very happy with what I received. It goes over a few knotting styles and combinations that a very nicely put together, and it doesn't use 'flashy' beads that you only wish you could buy. Also, the diagrams and pictures are VERY easy to follow, as well as the tips and techniques are very useful.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

this book was disappointing. I was looking for something that was easy to follow and didn't require a lot of reading. I wanted something that was mostly diagrams with captions. This book gave me the exact opposite of what i wanted- lots of words, not a lot of diagrams.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
