This small compendium will guide you in learning macramé. This book describes each knot step by step and thinking about the colors and the strings to use. You will also find the art and method of making fringes, fabrics and braids.
The great little book of macramé contains everything you ever wanted to know about macramé:from cutting the ropes, making a vertical or picot mount, to making color changes, making a lark's head knot, a Joséphine or a tatting, creating a double horizontal erase, make a braid of 4 or 8 strings, make a scubidú with a square braid...
It is divided into five chapters:before you start; the basic knots; the braids; principles and finishes and finally a table of knots. The first chapter exposes the necessary tools and materials. The second, third and fourth chapters show from two to six illustrations per design with arrows that indicate the places through which the ropes should pass. All illustrations are accompanied by texts. The Knot Chart brings together fifty-six of the finished designs that appear in the previous chapters.
