Some animated static knots

Long ago, I had built a program that could be used to draw knots. It could also calculate some invariants like the Dowker-Thistlethwaite code of the given knot, the writhe and the Fox n-colorability.

The complete program is available online as linked above. Here are some GIFs that I recently made while fiddling around with the code.

Here is a figure-8 knot!
