Note from the designer: The written instructions for the cable pattern are now available to download for free from my blog!

“I’ve loved the intricate beauty of Celtic knotwork for as long as I can remember, and since teaching myself how to draw knotwork (inspired hugely by George Bain’s Celtic Art: The Methods of Construction) I’ve become obsessed with learning how to render complex Celtic knots in knitted cables -- it’s fascinating to watch the interlacing patterns gradually emerging as you knit.

Three repeats of this particular cable pattern (begun with a provisional CO, worked flat and then grafted together) make a perfectly sized cowl, just right to tuck around your neck and keep out the chill; however, you could also choose to work in a slightly heavier yarn and bigger needles and use the cable pattern for a scarf, or even repeat the panel horizontally as well as vertically for a striking blanket or throw.“
