2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Jesse H. Coleman on Aug. 18 2001
Format: Paperback
Much of the material in this book has not been published in over 50 years. A modern treatment and updating was needed and Budworth has done a good job. This book has good sections on globe knots, Turks Head Knots and mats. The early chapter on Tips, Techniques and Terms is good. I know of no other publication of globe knots since Ashley in the 40s. New developments are still being made in Turks Head Knots and globe knots. The book is already out of date.
This book is a good addition to the library of any serious knot lover. It sits next to my copy of Ashley's classic.

Format: Paperback
This is a enjoyable book with many usefull knots and good information on applying many of them.There are many errors in the line drawn instructional drawings which could create alot of headaches for someone without somewhat of a knotting background.Personally I found the globe knot sections drawings a little confusing but workable.Of the many of already familiar knots I found interesting and better ways of tying them by using this book. Just that aspect and the icicle hitch to show your friends is well worth it.All in all this authors books are good reading, nothing overly complex, but a good addition to have in a knotting book collection.

Format: Paperback
The 'Complete' in the title is a little misleading but this book does go a long way to being a very thorough introduction to decorative knotting. There is much here for the beginner and a number of good ideas for the advanced student as well. The drawings are very clearly drawn and easy to follow. The text is also short and to the point and you even learn a bit of knot lore along the way. I recommend this book without reservation as a fine addition to anyone's knotting library.

By A Customer on March 20 2000
Format: Paperback
The book has some neat knots but not very much for the begginer. The section on globe knots doesn't tell how to work the sphere into the center and a few diagrams are wrong (pg 141 step one-two). Bud ford mentions the Ashley Book of knots way to much. Mabe you would be better of with that book than his

As a professional knot maker, I thought I had every book - this book brought new ideas and a very clear way to understand them. Plus a very interesting read about the history of the various knots. I can't wait to work through the whole book.
