Ever since I saw jonrgrover's "Heavy Chain", I wondered what forms of Celtic knotwork and chainmail weave could be created on a small grid. This design contains all the ones I have found so far. Feel free to clone this or make suggestions!
All these designs are 1x1 or 2x2; I made larger swatches to show how they tessellate and can form even larger shapes.
If you clone this, I recommend opening another new FontStruction at the same time, then copy-pasting the knots you want from the cloned project over to the new one. This will help reduce the chance that your creation gets corrupted.
An experimental take on Laconica with Celtic knotwork. I'm not sure how to balance it better than this... any ideas? I'll do all the glyphs once I have a complete set of solutions for them.This is a clone of Laconica
This was once a shy, lineal design... then it rebelled against its parents, went subtractive, and finally became futuristic knotwork. Gnarly!

Chain stands for chain mail. I play RPGs and chain is a kind of armor. Heavy means that it is tightly interwoven.This is a clone
