KnotTheory` can also draw knots and links via their Morse link presentations:
(For In[1] see Setup)


For example, here is the 11crossing alternating link L11a548:
In[4]:=

Show[DrawMorseLink[Link[11, Alternating, 548]]]

Out[4]=

There are two options available for this program. Adding the option Gap > g, where g is between 0 and 1, changes the amount of white space in each crossing; increasing g increases the white space, making large diagrams more visible. The option ArrowSize > as (where as is between 0 and 1) alters the size of the orientation arrows. Here is the same drawing as above, but this time the orientation arrows are gone and the crossings are more clear:
In[6]:=

Show[DrawMorseLink[
Link[11, Alternating, 548],
ArrowSize > 0, Gap > 0.65
]]

Out[6]=
