Celtic Plait - Another Beautiful Cable Knit Patterns you'll Fall In Love

I enjoy working with cable patterns like this Celtic Plait Panel. I often get interrupted during knitting and can't knit cable without having a row counter with me. It's a good idea to keep track of your work on a row counter every time you knit a pattern with more than 2-3 rows.

This Celtic plait is not very hard to knit. I love learning new stitches (in this case, T5F and T5B) and very much excited to see the results reveal. This pattern has only 8 repeated rows and is easy to follow. I think it will make a good headband or a front of a sweater or this Celtic Purse. Enjoy!
