My Diamond Hill Loop Celtic Cable Knitting Pattern is inspired by the rugged terrain and hiking trails off the Western Coast of Ireland. This pattern can be knitted up to create a scarf or pillows. Attach multiple panels together to create blankets, afghans, and throws of any size desired. This gorgeous design is a fun project to knit up for St. Patrick’s Day and all year round. Find some quiet time for yourself, patiently knit the pattern row by row, and enjoy watching your Diamond Hill Loop Celtic Cable design emerge as you knit it up.

Color-Coded System
There are 5 different cable stitches in this pattern. I have created a color-coded system in both the written and chart patterns to easily discern the different cable stitches at a glance. Hope it helps!
