This is one of the best Macrame Book that I have seen. (English edition published in 2013) Includes Over 70 Knots and Small Repeat Patterns Plus Projects.
A comprehensive directory of over seventy macrame knots and patterns, plus projects. Learn how to make over seventy macrame knots and small repeat patterns, then use them to create a wide range of projects. Each knot is shown in a close-up photograph with clear step-by-step diagrams showing how they are tied. Starting with the basics, the knots progress on to more complicated and complex designs, but as all are clearly diagramed it is very easy to follow along. This invaluable guidebook opens with a discussion of the different types of threads or cords available, shows a range of clasps and other findings, plus covers the types of beads to use. Macramé Pattern Book includes useful information like how to set up your work board, and other helpful lessons like how to keep track of the cord ends for less confusion. The thirty-three projects range from simple jewelry pieces like the classic friendship bracelet and watch straps to more complex ones like a variety of bags and baskets. Translated from the Japanese, Macrame Pattern Book is an outstanding resource for both new and more experienced knotters.
