There are numerous types of boards on the market. The one ,

used in this book, the Lee Originals Craft Board, is marked

off 1n 1 tnch squares for ease in measuring . Circles are provtded to use as a gutde when working on a curve. T-Pins are

tncluded to aid in keeping your knots in place. A tape measure, rubber bands, and scissors are also neces sary items.

Some of the designs shown in this book require tha t the

knotting be done with the work suspended from a hook. The

hook should be strong and attached to a stud or beam for

support, since some of the hangings may weigh up to 30

pounds when they contain 10 pounds of jute, a large clay

pot, and so tl.

use in pot slings, we suggest the tarred jute.

It has been

treated to retard rot from strong sun light and high humidity.

Natural or bleached jute is exce ll ent also . However, care

must be taken not to overwater plants in porous containers,

such as c lay pots. We do not recommend colored jute for

outdoor use unless the jute is labeled "Colorfast" or "NonFade" and the pot sling will be in the shade. For indoor use

the dyed jute comes in a variety of beautiful co lors.

Yarn,' nyl on, cotton, and various other types of cords may also

be used, depending upon the effect you wish to create. Yarn

gives a beautiful soft look and iends itself to very intricate
