Love knots have series of winding and interlacing loops with no beginning and no end. A symbol of everlasting love, love knots were made from ribbon or drawn on paper. Love Knots has no beginning and no end and consists of graceful loops -sometimes forming hearts, in which messages of love are either attached and knotted in (or written on the ribbon or rope) and read by turning the knot around and around. And, if you couldn't make a real love knot, then many Valentines included a design of one. A young man often hung this love knot on his true love's doorknob, slipping a letter under also. Some feel this began with the sailors since many were skilled at making fishnets and so doing knots or macrame were their skill. Others say it is a catholic custom and design. While others say it is Scandinavian.
