A modern interpretation of Cadha’s Capelet worked in one continuous piece from the point of the hood down to the bottom edge. Inspired by the Celtic Knotwork of Ailee’s homeland, the Eternal Knot cable pattern on the back has no beginning or end, connecting one’s destiny bound by time and change. The pattern comes with three variations: a hood, an easy version without the cable, or a collar rather than a hood.

The capelet was as rich of green as my skirts, and I noticed with some envy the fanciful Celtic knot work stitched on the back. It looked warm, and I wished I had the skill to make one for myself. Perhaps she could teach me.” ~ Excerpt from The Secret Stitch by C. Jane Reid
