Celtic Knot

Photobucket
I found an image online - a basic pattern for a celtic knot. 
Then, I transferred the pattern onto a round tile using the method taught here. The knot basically breaks down into two separate sections.
I used a different pattern in each - a shattuck variation and a pattern I can't find a name for - is it already out there? If not, I'm going to call it hached. Like hatch marks :). I added a little color background with my Pitt pens. 
This was fun and really simple to do! The fact that it looks like a zendala is just a welcomed coincidence :).
