Pattern description from The Celtic Collection: “For the child’s version of Tara, I decided to use an easier knotwork emblem and border pattern. These designs are off-set against a simple textured two-row background, with one row worked in single rib and the other knitted. A lighter effect has been achieved by using a single strand of tweed yarn, rather than the double thickness of Tara.”
