A Celtic Knot is always made of one, long thread... the thread of life.
The Celts believed the human soul is a fragment of the divine which ultimately returns to its source. The soul rids itself of all impurities through successive rebirths, until it reaches perfection.
Celtic Knots are complete loops with no end or beginning. The interlaced knot work patterns with their unbroken lines symbolize our spiritual growth.
