Two squares, two triangles and two tubes. Throw some cable patterns and some celtic knots in and you get: a celtic hoodie constructed in a special manner.

It is worked top down and is completely seamless. First the hood is worked flat in one piece. When it is long enough stitches are cast on for the body which is a basically rectangle.

The top of the body will be folded to the front to form the shoulders. Next, the sleeves are worked in the round.

Stitches are picked up along the hood and body to work a cabled edge that fluently flows in the celtic knots at the fronts.

The cables and celtic knits are charted and fully written out.
Also included: a photo tutorial for the special increases and decreases.
