Hi !

May be this will give you the beginning of a trail... think that they are "half-knots"   seems a good idea is there worth a look ?   pic  relatively close-up pic   see bottom left pic

Here are some llinks to possible knots : please not that they are just laid in a diagram-like form and not correctly "dressed". (Thanks Dan_Lehman for opening my eyes )     traditional1    traditional2    knot A large   knot A close-up   knot B large   knot B close-up

One word of warning ( seems evident afterwards, but  I know of such accidents to have happenned) : take great care that it is absolutely impossible for a child of any age to put his head inside a mesh if he can not very easily take it back. Either "small" meshing or ""large enough" meshing.
