Knotwork Tutorial for Gimp by CryoSphinx Knotwork Tutorial for Gimp by CryoSphinx
:star: Making Knots with Gimp's Path Tool. :star:

I may make another, but I think I pretty much covered everything you need to know to make this style of knots.


Let me know if you find this tutorial useful or confusing. Any questions, comments, or critiques are welcome.

The end result of the knot can be seen here: [link]

And if you are looking for a similar tutorial for Inkscape you can find it here: [link]

Paths created from selections are set to invisible by default. Once you've created one, you will have to set their visibility in the Paths window in order to see them on the canvas.

Let me know if this solves the problem.

Yep, and it's possible for any other program that uses vectors (like Inkscape) too. :D

I'm having insane difficulties at the point where it says; Take the paths tool again, select the circle and add control points where it intersects with the line. Then delete the unwanted points to make it look like the picture on the right.

Please help!
