I'm doing a handmade Christmas this year and I have this Celtic charm I want to use as a necklace for my father-in-law. My idea is a macrame/ hemp type necklace. He's kinda laid back and I'm pretty sure would like it, but I can't find any knots I like. I was hoping to find a tutorial with something Celtic looking to go with the charm but the closest I've found is a Pretzel knot and I'm not crazy about it. Sorry for the pun, wasn't intended.
Does anyone know of some interesting knot tutorials? And could you post the links pretty please?

Thank you! Sorry for the tardy reply, I've been working with the hubby to remodel the house. Very tiring!

No worries - there are so many forums and boards here, sometimes it's easy to lose track of things.  We just added a second story to our bungalow and redid several large sections of the remainder too - it can be beyond chaotic.  Hope the links can help you out.

Yes it is choatic. My living room and kitchen are in shambles right now, but I keep telling myself that it will look better once everything is done. Smiley I found a couple promising knots on the pages you linked to, thanks again.
