For a little luck of the Irish, knit up my Braided Celtic Knot Scarf! I love all the different combinations of knitted Celtic Cables and this interwoven design is a fun one. Wear it as an Infinity Scarf or cover your shoulders for a mock Shrug. It’s definitely a statement piece!

Inspired by my new Knit Stitch Pattern Book, experienced beginners will confidently knit this scarf up while learning a few extra techniques along the way. Enjoy knitting 3 textured patterns which include the simple Garter Stitch, Stockinette Stitch, and a large swath of the graphic Parallelogram Stitch.

Please enjoy my step-by-step instructions, knitting techniques, materials, video tutorial, and printable knitting pattern, all included on my website Studio Knit.
