The Celtic Art Coracle Volume 1 Issue 5

Illustrated Magazine of Celtic Art and Calligraphy
Volume 1. Number 5 April 1983

Thanks to Moya for permission to reprint the article on Devenish, by Betty Crichton, from the journal of the Chalice Well Trust, Glastonbury, Somerset, England.

The cover design for this issue is from a Greeting card design by Bob Jones.

The Foursquare Knot from the Cumdach Molaise, figure 36,  page 76, below,  illustrates two methods of drawing the knot. On the left, the midline of the knot iis woven as a line, then outlined,  segment by segment. 

On the left side, the midline is drawn, without weaving, and then  the four-strand weave is set off about each intersection. These are then joined up, segment-by-segment, to produce the final result, which is called Split-ribbon weaving

The horizontal and vertical breaklines are based on a 4x4 dot grid.
 Compare with a similar design on a 5x5 dot grid, below.
