Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a baking sheet.
Add warm water, yeast, and honey to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook attachment. Stir just until honey dissolves. Allow to rest for 5 minutes – yeast will rise and foam.
Add flour and salt to the bowl and mix on low until mixture comes together. Switch to medium speed for 2-3 minutes until dough is smooth and elastic.
With flour-dusted hands remove dough from the bowl and shape into a large ball. Cover with a towel and let rest for 10 minutes.
Cut the dough in half, then cut in halves again so that you have four sections of dough.
Take one section of the dough and cut it in half, then in halves again. Roll each piece into log, about 8 inches long. Tie the dough into a knot, then place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough.
Stir together butter, garlic powder, garlic, Italian seasoning, and parmesan. Brush onto the knots being sure all the dough surface has been brushed with a bit of butter so it doesn’t dry out while baking.
Bake for 8-12 minutes until golden. Allow to cool slightly before serving. See notes for storing.
