This knot looks quite challenging and to draw it from a scratch is not a simple task. But don't get put off by its apparent complexity. There is a way to construct this relatively easily.
Here is how you can construct one.
The next step is to replace all these squares and triangles with the square and triangle knot modules that we have worked on. The result is the following:
Now you have to erase all the triangular and square frames to expose just the knots chain.
This method can be utilized to produce many complex knots. It is interesting to observe the relationship between tessellations and knots. This opens up new area of tessellations that study the number of possible tiling combination using squares and equilateral triangles.
