The Celts who first drew knotwork patterns most likely had no meaning attached to their knotwork.  Many people eMail and ask for the meanings behind the different knots and jewelry.  I have come across some common MODERN meanings which I have listed below.  Keep in mind that there were 8 BASIC KNOTS used by the Celts and their meaning, if any, will remain a mystery!
