This month, I’ve been playing around with spool knitting. Last week, I posted pictures of a few different flowers you could create with the spool knit tubes. This week, I used the spool knit tubes to create ornamental knots. I used the book 75 Chinese, Celtic, & Ornamental Knots by Laura Williams and Elise Mann for the patterns.
I’m not sure these are practical for anything; but it was fun to create them…kind of like doing a puzzle.
Double Flat Button Knot
This is a variation of the button knot. Traditionally, round button knots were used as buttons, hence their name.
The figure-of-eight pattern is one of the 12 elementary Celtic knots and is a symbol of eternity and the boundlessness of God.
I also made this small flat knot mat. I imagine this could be worked into a cool wall hanging if you added more rows.
Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.
