Celtic Knots



Pattern: Celtic Knots
Yarn: Alize Lanagold Classic 320 g
Needle: 4 mm
Time to knit: over three weeks in between three hats and a pair of mittens

Celtic Knots is a Japanese pattern, but as 1) I don't speak Japanese and 2) I rarely follow strictly a pattern, I took the general idea and the pattern of the knot and then calculated everything to fit me according to my gauge. The sweater was ready and sewn around Christmas, but I didn't like the sleeves, which were first knit 3/4 long, as in the original pattern. I unraveled more than two-thirds of the sleeves and redid them as a bit extra long, IMO this length is more consistent with the rest of the pattern. I also decided not to sew the neck-piece folded in half, but to leave it roll inward.
