Celtic Cable Panel

If you are a regular reader of Knotty Generation, you know I love all things Celtic and have been working on creating the coolest crochet designs and patterns inspired by Celtic art and symbolism. I'm really happy with the way the Celtic Knot Granny Square came out. I've incorporated cable panels in a few cardigan patterns for my upcoming book, and now....

I'm working on a Celtic Cable Panel. I've played with a few ideas/designs and here is one of them. I'm mainly using FPtr (front post treble) stitch but I want the cables to intertwine more and I think I'm going to tweak the stitch and do a quad version of the FPtr.

Just curious, has anyone ever done that before? I've searched the net, all my pattern books, and haven't heard of this stitch, or type of stitch. I'll keep you 'posted' (no pun intended!)

Have you checked out Earthenwood Studio? (www.earthenwoodstudio.com). The owner, Melanie, makes ceramic beads and buttons. She has some Celtic inspired ones. I instantly thought of you!

Very interesting, Pam! And your swatches look good. I'm afraid to try those though, looks complicated ;)
