Free Pattern: Celtic Knot Stole


I’ve finally finished writing up the Celtic Knot pattern. Sorry for the delay, I really have been so busy lately that it’s ridiculous. Thank goodness for bank holiday weekends.

The pattern is finished but in order to fit the charts into a document that would actually be printable I had to cut them up a bit. However, if you want to see the chart of the complete stole I have also uploaded an excel version of the chart. I’m afraid that the pattern is chart based, so I apologise for those who prefer it to be written out. When I have some spare time I’ll try and get round to doing this.

If anyone does knit this please could you let me know if there are any mistakes? I’ve checked through carefully but you know what those pesky little errors can be like!

The pattern is probably for intermediate knitters, but in lace terms it is quite an easy pattern. It requires a crochet cast-on for the border and I’ve done a quick tutorial on this in my post below (just in case).

ETA: Please see the pattern links in the sidebar.

Nice to hear from you, hope all the busyness calms down soon.

You are very kind to take the time to write this up. Somewhat beyond me at the moment but the tutorial will be really useful. Thank you.

Oh Kendra yet another piece of sheer beauty you have created I just wish I had enough of my Posh Yarn cashmere to do it but I do think it would look better in a plain coloured yarn so will save it for that. Thank you so much for your kind generosity in sharing your pattern ,yet again :)

I agree with everything that has been said about your cleverness, and your generosity in writing up and sharing the pattern.
Thanks too for the tip about it being for intermediate knitters, but quite easy for lace. I'd love to have a go at it.

First, thank you, Sarah, for the lovely Celtic Knot stole pattern. I am knitting it for my daughter to wear at her wedding in April. I am, however, very stuck. I have finished the body of the stole and have begun working the borders but I never seem to end up with the correct number of stitches after my ssk joining to the body. I have reached frustration point, and as I live in a tiny village on the west of Ireland there is no one to ask for help. I am hoping that you can help me. What am I doing wrong?

I love the patterns you posted but I'm having trouble downloading the Celtic Knot Stole from Ravelry and FileDen. I would love to knit it and the Gerda Stole. You're patterns are so beautiful.
