Combing style with practicality, The Celtic Collection presents 25 exquisite patterns for men, women and children, by one of Britain's top~selling knitwear designers. This enticing selection of sweaters blends an array of yarns with beautiful shades that flow into one another and enhance the timeless Celtic motifs embedded in the designs.
Inspired by the intricate patterns and rich colours of Celtic manuscripts and stonework, the sweaters range from a casual Celtic oversize key jacket in soft muted colours, perfect for a mild autumn day, to a knotwork and diamond ‘Sloppy Joe’ classic in glowing jewel colours, ideal for a cool summer’s evening, or a cool and elegant Celtic key shirt for more sophisticated occasions.
The patterns draw on four distinctive knitting styles ~ Fair Isle, Fisher Gansy, Aran and Intarsia ~ and come complete with clear charts & instructions. Beautifully photographed on location in the west of Ireland by fashion photographer Mike Bunn, these glorious garments will inspire any enthusiastic knitter to take up their needles without delay.
