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.
