COMER (Hesperia CA) – This review is from: Braiding & Knotting: Techniques and Projects (Paperback) This Dover reprint of a much older book has useful instructions for making braids, lanyards, sandals, bracelets and decorative trim, even a handbag in silk. Recommended for people who want to do something useful with fiber and cord.

This review is from: Braiding & Knotting: Techniques and Projects (Paperback) I was searching for a book that included visual and detailed instructions on various kinds of multi-strand braids and the techniques involved in creating something that looked complex, but was fairly simple to do. There are many knot books out there, as well as some braiding books – but the braid books are usually for friendship bracelets or hair and the knot books are more simple knots with specific uses. This book has sections on flat braiding and knot braiding. It is easy to follow, and gives written instructions in addition to several diagrams of finished weaving! I was very excited to receive this book. I am now braiding a lovely cord out of several colors using seven strands, and I could not be happier. I just wish this book were more widely available! It would have saved me a lot of waiting time if I could have found it at a local book store. I would recommend this book to people who can synthesize written instructions with visual diagrams; it is not for young children, as the finger coordination required would be challenging when combined with trying to learn a new skill from a book that is mostly text and illustrated in black and white. Once the reading skills are solid (as long as they can multitask well), they should be able to focus on coordinating their hand movements and sorting out the appropriate strands for each next step.
