Getting Knotted – It’s a Human Thing
In case you haven’t been following this blog, I like knots. I crochet and I like to draw Celtic knots. I have also experimented with the type of knots found in Islamic art. Now, thanks to a couple of Internet friends, I have found two more styles of knotwork which are very similar to Celtic interlace. The first – Croatian interlace – evolved on the same continent. The second – mizuhiki (水引) – evolved in Japan.
It seems that wherever there are human innovators there are also complex knots.
