Today see’s the first pattern go on sale for my line Celtic Knits.
Celtic Knits is something I’ve been dreaming about for years it combines my love of knitting and design with the stories and legends of Ireland that I grew up with.
Everywhere you turn here in Ireland if you look and ask you will find tales of how strong brave warriors and maidens of great beauty and grace loved, fought and lived. This is the Ireland I love, this is the Ireland I put into my patterns and designs.
The first pattern released is a cowl called Flowing Uphill.
The wonder of the water that Flows Uphill.
In the local village of Fore in the heart of the midlands of Ireland there are a number of wonders and one of these is the wonder of the water that flows uphill. This wonder can be seen and visited today from the source right to the mill uphill from the source.
Should you visit I can recommend a tour guide to bring you and talk to you about the wonder and the others in the area, I may even have to drop on by and say Hi!
This cowl was inspired by this local wonder.
From the beginning of this cowl the main colour weaves and winds its way in a path up the cowl finally coming to an end at a gentle roll at the top. With a gentle roll to the top and bottom of the cowl it hugs the neck when doubled offering snugness and warmth. When worn single it gives the appearance of that same water flowing.
Included along with the pattern are more details on this wonder including how it indeed flows uphill.
This pattern can now be purchased in my Ravelry store here
