Celtic Spiral Knot
Article © MAIL User: Corvus
You will need (for each unit of Celtic Spiral Knot):
4 large rings AR of around 5 (e.g. 1mm wire 5mm ID), I'm using 1.2mm wire 6mm ID.
2 small rings AR of around 3 (e.g. 1mm wire 3mm ID), I'm using 1mm wire 3mm ID.
and 2 connector rings, these can be any size you like, here I'm using 1.2mm wire 4mm ID.
Join 2 of the large rings together.
Put a connector ring on one end but make sure the large rings cross each other just like this:
Add another large ring to the previous 2.
Then add another large ring to that one and the previous 2 so that the second pair cross over each other, just like this. It is important to get this right or you will end up with a completely different pattern.
Now you need to 'lock' these in place with one of the small rings, like this. Make sure the small ring passes through just the 2 rings marked with the arrows.
Now turn it over and do exactly the same on the other side.
And you're done, just make more of these joined with the connector rings and you've got a chain of Celtic Spiral Knot.
