This is a great way to get into the easy and interesting craft of Kumihimo. For directions, examples, supplies lists and methods the information is complete and accurate. I have done a bit of Kumihimo in the past and essentially stuck to a single method but this book allows me to explore different methods of construction resulting in vastly different pieces. Even something as simple as measuring out twice the length of fiber as you want the finished product to be was a bit of a revelation to me. The book was well written and easy to follow. The instructions and illustrations were clear and concise.
