Knot notes
I Ching trigrams (Yi Jing) commentary by Zhou Yi – oldest Chinese classical text – “in prehistoric times, events were recorded by tying knots; in later ages, books were used for this.” Han scholar Zhen Suen (2nd century CE) said in his book Yi Zu: “Big events were recorded with complicated knots, and small events, simple knots”.
In Peru also: Qui Pu system of knots where 10 = single knot, 20 = double knot and 100 = multiple knots
Prehistoric knots. Around 100CE the Shuowen Jiezi defines ‘knot’ as the joining of two cords.
Chinese knotting almost died out forever but was luckily rescued in the 70s by a handful of people; now it’s a flourishing craft again
