Examples of floral knotting techniques.TECHNIQUE:

This technique is exactly as the definition says.  

By tying the plant material into a knot, the knot then becomes a feature in the design, creating interest either as a fastening to hold two or more design components together or as an embellishment in the design, giving accent.

Bold plant material knotted may also become a dominant feature in a design.

The knot may be tied tightly or loosely; single or double; it depends on the desired effect.
