Freestyle Celtic Knot Challenge

Freestyle Celtic Knot
Challenge

I previously posted an item giving you a link to how to draw Freestyle Celtic Knots on Youtube. Below is the link if you would like to view it again.

I have since draw some basic distructions and am presenting a challenge to you to have a go at your own celtic knot design.

Below is my distructions:






I have already had a go and this is my example from the distructions above. I call it 'Celtic Tangles'.


 I would really love to see what you have designed. You can either follow my directions exactly or use your own string design to turn into a Celtic Knot. 

I will be posting a Challenge once a week from now on and I would appreciate to hear from you guys which day suits you best. Please leave a comment to let me know.

HAPPY DOODLING

  5. I probably "need" another challenge! I love the idea though. A weekend post would be great although any time would be fine. Great to think I actually posted first - when school starts that won't happen again. LOL!

  6. I love this freehand celtic knot, and it's so easy! Who knew? I've linked to my take on it; I didn't add any doodles, I just did some shading and highlighting with coloured pencils.

  12. As I promised earlier in the weekend, i posted my 2 results of the challenge. It was a lot of fun, and indeed making the knot was a piece of cake. Thank you for the challenge. I think wil use this way of tangeling again.
