Bright Blessings fellow Witches! Today we present to you another installment in our Answer a Witchcraft Question from Google Series. This post’s question is:
“Does it mean anything in witchcraft when a black and red ribbon are knitted together?”
Let’s dive in.
First, let’s focus on the colors at play here in this question. Red and black. Red represents the element of Fire and the South direction. Tuesday and Friday corresponds to the color red, as does ambition, passion, lust, love, and success. Black, like red, also represents Tuesday, as well as Saturday. Protection, grounding, banishing, uncrossing, and establishing boundaries are all magickally aligned with the color black.
KNIT VS CROCHET VS KNOT
As a knitter, crocheter, and all around crafter myself, I’m bringing this up because a lot of the time people use these terms interchangeably. It all looks the same to a layman. A knit scarf may as well be crocheted in their eyes. So when the question posed uses the word ‘knitted’ I’m assuming it could certainly be knit or crochet, but what I expect is knot magick.
Knot magick is tying knots into things and said knots correspond to people or situations you are casting on. Spells of this nature typically align with binding spells and joining spells. This type of spellwork joins and entwines two individual things together.
IS THERE RED AND BLACK RIBBON WITCHCRAFT?
Certainly could be. Red could represent love between two people and the black could represent boundaries. Or the black ribbon corresponds with uncrossing work while the red ribbon represents success. This type of magick is fairly easy to do and not uncommon.
Another day, another Google witchcraft question answered. What are your thoughts on this matter? Do you believe that the ‘knitted’ black and red ribbon was knot magick? Let me know in the comments! And as always, Bright Blessings and Happy Crafting!
