    New to Illustrator - Help!

    Gnocci11

      Hi all,

       

      Hope someone can help me out with this, it's driving me crazy!

       

      I'm new to Illustrator, been fiddling about for a couple of weeks, and now I'm working on a piece of celtic knotwork.

       

      I drew up the outline of the path in full (no fill, black stroke), as shown here: http://tinypic.com/r/291c194/6

      The final effect I'm looking for is something like this: http://tinypic.com/r/do8eif/6

       

      As you can see, I've more or less managed to add links on the straight edges, but am having trouble with the curves. I'm sure there's a way of achieving this in a much more precise way, but I don't know what tool/effect I'm looking for.

       

      Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
