D for Dragons - knotwork

I have spent the day cutting out dragons and then trying to work out how to do knot work patterns. I am hoping to do them on the actual letter. But it sure takes a bit of thought!
3rd time lucky - finally got the pattern to look like the one in the book. But the others aren't too bad. I just have to have a think on which one I prefer.

Any thoughts? The colouring in is to help me keep track of what crosses over and what crosses under. It will probably be gold of some sort on the real thing.

I have the book Celtic Knitwork by Iain Bain, this helped me a lot when I was making the knotwork quilting pattern I did on my C&G wedding dress.

Let me know if you want to borrow it.

Thanks for the comment.
I have that book, too. But had this one out for other inspiration, so thought I would try their method.
Thanks for the offer though!
