Celtic Knotwork Band by easlucas Celtic Knotwork Band by easlucas
EDIT (2/9/08): This piece has moved on to live with my dear friend Jen (aka Treasure the Pirate).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is my absolute pride and joy right now. The band is 45" with twist finished fringe. It's made of three colors of crochet cotton: blue, green, yellow. The warp is that of a basket weave. The pickup pattern is a Celtic braid.

I honestly thought with the cold dry weather, my fingers were going to fall off while working on this. If I do this pattern again, I'm going to add one more row of yellow on one side of the knotwork, and I'm going to use the right color for the edge border (oops).

Pattern altered from one found at [link]

Thank you for the comments. I own Helen Bress' book Inkle Weaving that I use for basic instructions, like the set up of threads for speckled background pickup weaving (such as I use for my knotwork band). Basic instructions for inkle weaving and looms online. Here are a few links for knotwork patterns/instructions:

Good luck, and let me know if you have any more questions! :)
