I call this trinity Celtic knot "Earth, Wind and Rain" for the colors in the ribbon yarn. They remind me of nature's trinity.
This trinity Celtic knot forms another example of the eternity pattern.
Many Celtic designs depend on the eternity knot, which has no beginning and no end. But, their specific paths vary to build unique shapes. In Celtic knots, each intersection differs in the over and under pattern from its adjacent intersections.
Other cultures, not just with Celtic heritage, find knot designs among their historical papers, monuments and buildings.
In addition, knot designs enjoy their own field of study in mathematics. One knot theory notation describes this particular knot as a 3-1 knot.
The hairpin lace made with ribbon yarn in earthy pink, blue and green colors contrasts beautifully against the black fabric background. I use small hand stitches to attach the hairpin lace to the contrasting black fabric background in the Celtic knot design.
An 8x8-inch black shadow box frames the trinity Celtic Knot. The outside dimensions measure 8-3/4 x 8-3/4 x 1-5/16 inches.
The shallow shadow box showcases the individual hand-crocheted stitches of the hairpin lace as the lace forms the trinity knot pattern.
The Celtic design arrives ready to display. The frame also allows you to easily change the Celtic design into a more decorative frame to fit your decor.
The framed Celtic knot art looks striking hanging on a wall, resting on a bookshelf or lying flat with a collection of other items.
This beautiful Celtic Knot adds an interesting accent and a conversation piece to any decor.
