Draw The First Curve
Using your pencil, draw a curve similar to a backwards letter “C”. A Celtic knot is drawn using three repetitive shapes which you’ll see in just a moment.
Add Another Curve
From the lower point, draw another curve but this time, it is facing downwards.
Complete The Knot Outlines
Join the points together by adding another curve. Notice how all three curves lines were the same.
Draw Inside Knot
Repeat steps 1,2 and 3 but make it inside and smaller than the first knot. This sets up the inside outlines for this Celtic knot.
