short Celtic Knotwork drawing

I shecked out a book from the Library and it helped me with a problem I had, I could not draw knots to save my poor life! But this helped and it is not as hard as you think, once you tried it.

First draw a square grid, with half width squars down each side. At the corner of each square, line go out either horizontal, vertical or diagonally. Where the squars meet, the lines must go in the same direction in all of the squars, so draw double lines, like so:




So to draw a knot in your grid, draw one of these three shapes over each empty corner like so"





Then join the lines in the top left-hand corner of each square to the lines at the bottom right. Try to draw smooth curves and keep the lines the same distance apart all the way along.

When you have done this for all the squars, join the lines in the top right-hand corner to the lines in the bottom left-hand corner of each square. When your line meets one of the lines that you have already drawn, stop and start drawing from the other line, trying to keep te line smooth. This gives the "over and under" interlaced knotwork.

Wow, great job! I think I have that book. I filed it under "stuff to do someday when I don't have a toddler hanging on me"...lol

It is a very cool book. The dots make a lot of sense....I just tend to get confuzzled by anything that even looks mathematical (chalk that up to math phobia)
Here are some of my Celtic knots and such on ArtWanted:

The Blue Knot I made up myself, and it's a bit lopsided...
