In this example I have used the same size graph we used in the Tutorial, and just marked off my walls in different places. There are two vertical walls in the center on the right and left, and one long (a double wall) one in the lower half on the horizontal. Knowing that the walls can only fall on the horizontal and vertical, you should eventually be able to figure out where the walls are in a knot just by looking at it. With most it will be easy, but when they start using the combination walls to make the patterns it can get a little confusing! I find it helps if I want to figure it out to take a marker to where you think the walls should go, and then see if it works by trying to make one yourself.

In this version, I have made four walls come off of the edges of my design. The first comes down, off the top of my graph, in the right hand corner. The next comes across my graph from the right side, near the bottom . The next comes up the graph from the bottom on the left side and the last comes across on the right side near the top. I have made the corners beside the walls using little "spear" shapes. These are like little diamonds and simple put a twist in the knot line so it can bend back again and continue on its way.

For this example, I have made four walls come from the center of my design, and then they bend at 90 degrees almost like 4 "L"s attache din the center. I have also used the "spear" shapes again, but they could just as easily be rounded shapes, rather than the diamond shape shown here.
