Discover how to draw different types (double, triple, quadruple) and by using geometry as a guide, how they can be interlinked to create borders and circular patterns in the Celtic manner. Simple, direct and user-friendly methods will be shown together with examples from traditional sources such as illuminated manuscripts. A comprehensive resource list is also provided to help send you off on your own personal explorations. Beginners welcome.
