Triquetra


This is an early symbol used by Christians as a sign of the Holy Trinity. The three equal arcs (composed exactly of three overlapping Viseca piscis symbols) express eternity in their continuous form, indivisibility in their interweaving, and their center is a triangle, ancient Trinity symbol.

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.”                (Matthew 28:19)

Dies ist ein frühes Symbol der Heiligen Dreifaltigkeit.
Die drei gleichen Bögen bekunden die Ewigkeit in ihrer Endlosigkeit, Unteilbarkeit in ihrer Verflechtung, und ihr Zentrum ist ein Dreieck:, ein altes Wahrzeichen für die Dreieinigkeit.

"Darum gehet hin und machet zu Jüngern alle Völker und tauft sie im Namen des Vaters und des Sohnes und des Heiligen Geistes."     (Matthäus 28,19)

 And here is the PDF "Triquetra" for you to download.

Please do not sell the patterns or the ornaments. If you give them as gifts, please always include the explanation of the symbol.
I would love to hear from all who are using my patterns. It would be nice to know that my efforts are not in vain. You find my email address on the pattern if you have any question about it. Happy to help.

I am also a lacemaker and am working on what I have dreamed about for quite some time:
the Chrismons in Lace Series.
This is a design by Brigitte Bellon. She is incredible generous and allowed me to share her pattern here with you for your own personal use PDF“Triquetra"

Here is my finished lace for my Advent calendar:
