06/26/2013 -- cleaned up formatting of this design; also a typo in the beginning of the pattern; you should only work 16 rows and then start the deep-V neck shaping.

This salute to the Emerald Isles is a fun knit with its cables, traveling stitches, knit-purl texture combinations and fun shawl collar. The hem is knit in a strip (with a very cool traveling stitch design), turned on it’s side and the body pieces are picked-up. The body is then knit in one-piece to the underarms and then split. The knit-purl “celtic knot” on the back is worth the trouble. A deep-V’d neckline is filled with a shawl collar done in garter stitch.

This is a wonderful stretch of your knitting prowess.
