How to Draw Celtic Patterns 36 – Perfect Triskele (positive)

A very balanced Celtic Triskele knot aka ‘Triquetra’, is found in the union of three circles. Jason Bellchamber show how to draw a “perfect Triskele” using a compass, ruler, pencil, ink pens and an eraser. Symbolically the number 3 is a lucky number and is the most common motif in Celtic art. Skill Level 1/4.
A quick freehand way of drawing this triskele is here.

This design is used in a repeating pattern for a border here
