I just love Tumblr and try to post a new meme everyday.

Celtic Pride Love Knot
July 4, 2017 - I have had and overwhelming reception to my crochet pride Celtic knot, which I actually created while camping one spring morning, so thought I would join the foray of pattern writing.
Please keep in mind, this is my first attempt at writing a crochet pattern so everyone who attempts it will be a tester. Feed back and pictures are always welcome especially if you choose to change up the colours!
CROCHET CELTIC PRIDE LOVE KNOT
I used size H8- 5mm crochet hook, yarn needle and Bernat Super Value Yarn in Bright Yellow, Kelly Green, Carrot Orange, Royal Blue, Light Damson and Berry Red.
ch - chain
hdc - half double crochet
st - stitch
FO- fasten off
Gauge: Not critical for this item.
Instructions: Make six pieces, one in each colour.
Row 1: hdc in 3rd st from hook, 1 hdc in 6 sts, 3 hdc in 1 st, 1 hdc in 24 sts, 3 hdc in 1 st, 1 hdc in 7 sts, ch 2, turn.

Using diagram 2, a needle and yarn, pick up 2 stitches from the bottom of each piece at C, draw tight to close center section, FO, weave in ends.
