The Ashoka Chakra Knot is another fusion knot, created via a combination of techniques shown in my book (Decorative Fusion Knots) and others shown here, on my YouTube channel. Similar in appearance to one of the 33 edicts depicted on the pillars of King Ashoka (an ancient emperor from India); my hope is that this knot will help round out your knowledge of fusion knots and, more generally, symbolic sacred knots. Coming soon to Tying It All Together.

As the following video shows, we (you and I) have nothing to worry about. The knot presented, the "Double Woven Globe Knot", is a response to those seeking a larger globe knot, while still using the TIAT globe knot tying method to create the piece.

Popular lore is that Saint Patrick combined the symbol of Christianity with the sun cross, a sacred symbol and solar motif associated with Celtic mythology.
