Do you know what seamanship is? It's the art of making knots. But no need to board a boat to learn how to make sea knots. My First Book of Nautical Knots brings you eighteen knots to discover. Some are done in a jiffy, like the figure eight or the bowline knot; others require greater concentration, such as the slip knot or the bosco knot. Still, others are so pretty that you can use them to make a jewel or a small decorative object. Ropework is an activity very popular with children, and My First Book of Nautical Knots offers beautifully illustrated step-by-step models of nautical knots that is sure to help parents and children to learn and master this craft together. As a bonus, My First Book of Nautical Knots presents the star of the playground: gimp stitching.
