Can a bias strip be hand knitted for applique on a pillow sham? As if following a narrow Celtic knot design?

Thank you,

Toni

Yes.

Knit a long narrow strip/design as desired.  You could do the whole thing straight and bend it to attach to your pillow OR you might consider doing short rows/corners turns to help go around the pillow's edges.

Depending on how 3-dimensional you wanted the design to be, you could use I-cord to weave  the knot pattern. It can be knit with very fine yarn over say, 3  sts so that it's rather flexible.
