Introduction: How to Draw a Celtic / Viking Knot - Easy Tutorial

About: Well I'm not a pro in any way, but I just love to make things of all kinds. I like rock and epic music, good food, norse mythology, biking, hiking, larping and so on... But there's one nemesis - Math. Yet I ...

Allright, I'll show you, how to draw celtic/viking knot easy and quickly, just follow my instructions, be carefull, use the dots (they're very helpful! ) and think! ;)
I can't speak english very well, so if you won't understand the steps, look at the photos. I'm sure you'll figure it out!

1) First, start with making a grid of dots 4 x 6 (you can make diferent grid). 

2) Add more dots in centre of "squares" (if you don't know, what I'm talking about, just look at the photos ;) )

3) Add a cross in the middle (as you change these lines, the pattern will be diferent ;) ) and make border lines by conecting outer dots.

4) Make some "hooks" around the dots in the corners and add the second lines

5) Do some more lines and the pattern will slowly come to you.

6) Don't forget to be careful and watch the "under" and "above" paths

7) In the end just highlight all the lines and fill the white gaps between them.

8) You're done ;)

It's really good for a first attempt! :) There are many factors which affect the final look. Try it again with diferent number of dots and try to do some another lines in the centre. I can post more pictures with diferent sizes, so you can see ;)

Anyway thanks for comment!
