The art of creating figures from pieces of string is an ancient and rewarding diversion that has entertained practitioners for centuries.

And 16 other intriguing designs. All you need to make even the most difficult figure is a length of ordinary string that can easily be knotted.
An ideal way to help develop a youngster's interest, attention span, and manual dexterity, this book also offers older hobbyists hours of challenging fun as they learn new twists to an age-old pastime.
