Celtic art is renowned for its complex and stylized interwoven patterns of coils and swirls. Here this "Celtic knotwork" is provided in basic patterns for use in paper, fabric, metal and wood crafts. Through a step-by-step process, the author breaks down the plotting of even complicated designs, allowing the freedom to create and plot your own designs. There are 224 designs; from original linework to identifying crossing points, and converting the knots to ribbonwork. Knots are grouped according to base element - including hearts, loops and lines - to give a grounding in the many permutations of the art. Corners and geometric designs are covered as well as zoomorphic motifs including fish, snakes, dogs, birds and plants. The final chapters give advice on embellishment and the use of colour and pattern in finishing a design. Techniques are illustrated throughout in full colour examples of the given designs.
