I have no idea how I'm supposed to tackle this, I've tried making a three-point star but after that I had no idea how to continue since a celtic knot has rounded edges.

  • $\begingroup$ There are quite a few Celtic knots, could you find an illustration to insert into your question? $\endgroup$ – Robin Betts Jul 3 '19 at 11:29

  • $\begingroup$ This celtic knot is a 2D illustration that doesn't necessarily translate to a coherent 3D shape. See blender.stackexchange.com/questions/99355/… and blender.stackexchange.com/questions/14822/… $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Jul 3 '19 at 11:44
  • $\begingroup$ could you please draw a picture of what you would like in 3D from your 2D picture? $\endgroup$ – moonboots Jul 3 '19 at 11:54

    $\begingroup$ If you want a 3D knot, you could take a look at the shipped Mesh: Extra Objects add-on > Torus Knots, and ask again if you have trouble tweaking type 1 into the shape you want. $\endgroup$ – Robin Betts Jul 3 '19 at 13:12

  • $\begingroup$ Oh I'm really sorry for not really going into depth on how I would've liked it, but the way you did it really looks good. It's basically like yours so I am really thankful for your step-by-step guide. $\endgroup$ – DennizB Jul 4 '19 at 1:16
