The mysteries of ancient Celtic artists’ designs fascinate us with their beauty and complexity; their interlacing lines of continuity speak of eternity.

The Celtic Jenna Rose is not one, but two intertwined cords; a simplified artistic interpretation of the circular pattern on the Hilton of Cadbol stone, Ross-shire.

Knit in a wonderfully soft blend of soy/acrylic, this tank can be worn on its own or as a topper over a diaphanous puffed sleeve blouse -- a versatile addition to your hand knit collection.

Finished bust measurement:
32 (36, 40)” / 81.5 (91.5, 101.5) cm
Length: 20 (23.5, 27)“ / 51 (60, 68.5) cm
Intended to be worn with zero to 2” / 5cm of negative ease

This strapped top is knit from the hem up beginning on 2 needles, the back and front are then joined and knit in the round to the armholes; at this point the Back and Front are knit separately again.

There are no seams to sew – except the straps if you choose not to graft them.
