Celtic Knot Stitch Pattern

Loom & Yarn

Any single knit straight or circular loom with appropriate yarn for the loom gauge (spacing between the pegs). See link for help on gauge.

The Ultimate Oval Loom 3

 

General Stitch Count notes:

The following stitch pattern is the minimum stitch width and rows for 1 repeat of the pattern. Use the “Multiple” number multiplied by the amount of design repeats you want for your own design. Note if extra spacing between stitch pattern desired, or a border on either side, add enough stitches to accomodate. For example add 5 stitches on either end for a garter or seed border (10 total). For specialty patterns such as a cable, add 2-5+ stitches between repeats or main pattern to make it stand out; use stockinette (all knits) or reverse stockiette (all purls). For a cable design use reverse stockinette. {a Seed Stitch of 5 is a row of k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, followed by the 2nd row of p1, k1, p1, k1, p1; repeat rows 1 & 2; VIDEO LINK}

 

Example for a single pattern scarf in THIS stitch patern: 5 sts for seed st, 2-5 sts for purl, 24 sts for pattern, 2-5 sts for purl, 5 sts for seed. Total of 38-44 sts. Need loom with enough pegs.

Example for 3 stitch patterns wide: 5 sts for seed st, 2-5 sts for purl, 24 sts for pattern, 2-5 sts for purl, 24 sts for pattern, 2-5 sts for purl, 24 sts for pattern, 2-5 sts for purl, 5 sts for seed. Total of 90-110 sts. Need loom with enough pegs.

Always swatch as in first example for gauge (size) and testing; knit a test swatch with at least 2-3 full pattern repeats to see the bigger picture.

Stitch Guide

 

GoodKnit Kisses is calling the Interlocking Crosses Stitch also the Celtic Knot Stitch Pattern since it closely resembles what we think of for a celtic knot. For a splendid loom knit tutorial on how to work these stitches watch the following video from Kelsey at The Vintage Storehouse in her Loom Knit Stitchionary. The stitch is made on a Kiss-Loom.  It allows you to change yarns and peg spacing without changing looms.  You can manke this Celtic Knot Stitch Pattern on any loom with enough stitches, too. Thank you Kelsey for your outstanding work in this series!
