Knotwork Tutorial-Sample Grids
Below are a few grid examples, using various grid spacing and
diamond sizes, plus one in the 3/4 ratio used in some knotwork.
Feel free to download, and use them for computer-based knots, or
print and use behind plain paper to allow for "invisible"
grids (like calligraphy spacing guides). You'll probably need to
double the grid size when printing to use them by hand,
unless you have excellent eyesight and really good
pen control :-) Light tables make these guides really nice.
This is the grid I've used for most of the samples in his
tutorial, using a medium band width (no, this is not a
Wide Band Grid
This uses the same spacing as the first, but smaller
diamonds generating wide bands.
Narrow Band Grid
This uses the same spacing as the first, but larger
diamonds generating narrow bands.
Doubled (Lindisfarne-style) Grid
Grid I've used for experiments in "doubled" knotwork.
See the Line Treatments--
Doubling section in the Knotwork Construction Tutorial for
information and instructions.
This grid attempts to lay out a 3/4 ratio cell
Have Fun, and Good Luck!
