More cabling … I am getting the taste of it …
Two squares, two triangles and two tubes. Throw some cable patterns and some Celtic knots in and you get: a Celtic hoodie constructed in a special manner.
It is worked top down and is completely seamless. First the hood is worked flat in one piece. When it is long enough stitches are cast on for the body which is basically a rectangle with a cabled texture.
The top of the body is folded to the front to form the shoulders. Next, the sleeves are worked in the round. Like this …
This photo is without the hood because I started with a provisional cast on and added the hood later. But the pattern starts with the hood first.
Stitches are picked up along the hood and body to work a cabled edge that fluently flows in the Celtic knots at the fronts.
It has been some kind of a puzzle to draw these Celtic knots continuously without a beginning and an end …
Well, there are two ends, I must admit, so it is more Celtic bits and ends, haha.
The cables and celtic knits are charted and fully written out.
There are some special increases that are more rounded than usual: a photo tutorial for these special increases and decreases is included.
Lots of illustrations and schematics are added, everything you need is right there while you’re working. There is no need to search on the www.
