Garlic Knots

I got this recipe from:
(Mine don't look nearly as pretty as hers!!)
Garlic Knots
1 1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees)
1 TBS active dry yeast
2 TBS white sugar
2 TBS vegetable oil
1 tsp salt
4 cups bread flour
4-6 cloves garlic finley minced or pressed trough garlic press...
4 TBS butter, melted
Mix the butter and garlic together and let it sit while you make the rolls.
Stir together the water, yeast, and sugar. Let stand until it is foamy (about 10 minutes) Add oil, salt, and 2 cups flour. Stir in remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time until the dough starts pulling away from the sides of the bowl. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, knead until smooth and elastic (about 8 minutes) Lightly oil a large bowl , place dough in and turn once to coat. Cover with a damp cloth, let rise in warm place until doubled (about 1 hour)
Deflate dough, turn onto lightly floured surface. Divide dough into 12-14 equal pieces, form knots by rolling each piece into a 4-6 inch rope, tuck the loose end through the middle of the knot. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet at least 2 inches apart, cover with a damp cloth or greased saran wrap. Let them rise until doubled (about 40 minutes) Cook at 400 degrees. Bake for 12-13 minutes, until golden brown. Immediately brush the garlic butter over the rolls when they come out of the oven.
