Pattern of the Week: Teresa’s Knot

This week’s pattern is one that is close to my heart. I created it from stitches I found in my stitchionaries and combined them for my lovely Aunt Teresa, hence the name. She is a lover of anything Celtic especially Celtic knots and I wanted to provide her with something that kept her hands warm while knitting. It took many hours to prefect this pattern and it is one of the ones I have made that I am most proud of.

So, after teaching you how to do the more specialized stitches for cable work I decided to provide you with a bit of challenge. Below are the patterns for my Teresa’s knot gloves. The first pattern is repeated four times before the intricate knot-work is done. It is important to remember that these patterns are meant to be read right to left and are written for the round which has no wrong side.
