Macrame, the ancient art of ornamental knotting, is presented here in a series of sample braids and simple projects which should establish firm foundation for subsequent knotting work. Special information is included to aid teachers in presenting this handcraft successfully. Basic instructions are usable for all strands, and special emphasis is placed on the use of Swistraw ribbon, a washable viscose rayon strand, which brings new dimension to macrame.

Projects range from simple square knot bracelets using only a few feet of material to complex designer creations, such as "Granada" by Dorothy Hall, featured on the cover.

Special features of this book include:

  • Instructions for over 50 projects.
  • "Memory Keys" to help the knotter remember techniques for basic knots.
  • Details on tie-dye and bleaching strands for added interest in macrame projects.
  • Large, distinct type and symbol codes to make reading and quick reference easier.
Projects in this book include: Belts, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, finger rings, scarf rings, hair and head bands, chokers, wall decorations, bags, "glamour mat", mobile, guitar strap, bottle cover, barrette, leash, and other special applications in the marvelous field of macrame.
