Celtic art – in metal or manuscript – is redolent with examples of outstanding intricacy and workmanship. I have always been fascinated by this, and I designed these knotwork patterns to be knitted in fine yarn, using elegantly contrasting colours. Like the Celtic masterpieces, the work requires dexterity, patience and skill.

This is a challenging project for advanced knitters.
