Step 5 - Draw a half circle from each corner to half way along each line; Step 6 - Your shape should now be looking like this; Step 7 - Finally, draw a curve from each point to the next; Step 8 - The finished knot showing the various stages in different colours.

Try changing the length of some of the lines or make bigger curves and see the differences to your knot.

Picts and other Celtic people liked bright colourful things. Why not colour in your knot like the ones on the opening KIDZONE page.
