Celtic Knot Tutorial: Triquetra “Trinity” Knot

We will have to wait on the Diva’s challenge. Laura Harms has not released a challenge this week, so instead, I wanted to share my newest video tutorial on Celtic Knots. This week’s video focuses on a single simple knot called Triquetra. This knot is one of the oldest, being seen in artwork as old as 500 BC.

Triquetra means 3 corners. This knot has a pagan mythology as well as a Christian one. It is commonly called the trinity knot or love knot and is a repeating motif in illuminated manuscripts, mosaics, metalwork and jewelry designs from the time of the Roman Empire.

Get to know Triquetra!
