An interesting ridged bao knot ornament
An interesting ornament featuring 4 and 6 sided 2 ridged bao knots with ice flower knots (I believe, although the title of the post is just "complex ice flower knots"). Just the one picture, no instructions.

How to tie a knotted rose ring
The steps are a little whimsically ordered, but they're clearly labelled so with just a little extra work on your part... The rose part is based on the Chinese button knot and a 5 part double coin variant, the band is macramé.

The abstracted yellow character in the middle means luck, the red shapes around the circle are lucky bats, and of course the red cord that forms the bulk of this work is about luck as well. A handful of views, no instructions (http://bbs.zhongguojie.org/thread-89823-1-1.html)
