Chain Grommets by Stuart Grainger

Chain Grommets by Stuart Grainger

Stuart has another book on the stocks - a collection of his beautifully drawn diagrams showing how to form chain grommets. He believes that the long-standing popularity of the Turk's Heads, which they superficially resemble and to which they offer alternatives, are in most instances easier to tie and teach. He has used the grommets for scarf rings, table napkin rings, bangles, basket rims and as starts and breaks in needle­hitching.
