This design is inspired by the Celtic knotwork patterns seen in the borders of illuminated manuscripts and carved into stone crosses.
Interlaced i-cords create the centre panel, then the headband is completed in a textured seed stitch pattern. The knitting is very easy, and there are plenty of diagrams to help you get the interlacing right.
Using just one 50g skein of aran yarn, this will make a great stashbuster or gift project, especially as it is so transportable - i-cord can be knit anywhere!
I love this photo by Tim Bradley!
