Celtic Knotwork Tutorials

March 01, 2011

I'm afraid I scared people with my last post. Normally I get at least 2 or 3 comments the day that I publish a post. I have none on the Celtic Knotwork post. I know I'm waaaaaay over-analyzing. But come, and I shall show you that Celtic Knotwork isn't so hard, after all...

Now's when I crack out my Alaadin voice and start singing, "I can show you the world/ shining, shimmering, splendid..." (Oh, wait, I can't sing. Right.)

Now, keep in mind that I have only done the most basic knotwork techniques, so I only searched for basic tutorials...

I would like to introduce you to the website that made Celtic Knotwork "click" for me. (My brain clicks. No clicking = no understanding. But once something has clicked, I won't forget it for a long, long time.)

Here is her tutorial page. The grids with the big and little dots are what made it click for me. You can print the grids for free, here. I recommend reading (and trying!) the basic knot and how to modify the basic knot.

I found a random blog that made the whole idea of "walls" click. That Jolie Girl has a tutorial here, and some very helpful notes here. And, wow, I just found this, which is very helpful, also.

This free PDF tutorial by Reed Mihaloew may be technical and in-depth, but just from a cursory glance it looks like one of the best I've seen so far. I plan to use this tutorial to teach myself some more complex knots.

You know, if I had the experience, I would totally make some tutorials of my own. I honestly don't think there is much out there that is very helpful.
(Although I imagine that books dedicated to the subject are very illuminating-- haha, I made a joke-- but our library doesn't have any.)

  1. I loved the Celtic Knotwork Post! I left a comment, but it must not have come through. Keep up the lovely work!

  2. Hmmm, it must not have gone through, it wasn't in my list of comments to publish. :)

    I'd like to see you try something with knotwork! Pwetty Pwease?

  3. I just found this! I think celtic knots are fascinating... but, I think anything that has anything to do with anything Irish is fascinating. :P I am at work now, but when I get home I will have to give this post a better read through. :)
