This is going to be a great year!

I am excited about the theme for this year’s monthly squares: Celtic Knots! We did gnomes in 2021, and cats in 2022.

The designs I’ve drawn are sometimes traditional Celtic knots found on stonework, manuscripts, and metalwork in Ireland and sometimes I take a bit of creative license and draw a knot that follows the rules (never-ending, woven over and under itself) but is not something actually found in history.

Thank you to everyone who grabbed the eBook during the pre-sale! You should have received your pattern through Ravelry now. It has been sent to the email address you used to pay with on PayPal (unless you contacted me to edit that).


The eBook listing will be updated monthly. Whether you receive an email or just a notification in your Ravelry inbox is dependent upon your Ravelry settings.

The eBook (on Ravelry or Etsy) is still your best deal. You’ll eventually receive all 12 Celtic knot squares (one a month) but you’ll save 40% compared to buying each square individually.

Each month’s square is also published on its own – and can make a great blanket by itself! Change up the colors or keep them simple, either way you will have something fabulous.

As always, I truly appreciate the time and effort my testers put in. They help me look good by making sure the pattern is error-free and the explanations are all spot-on. Plus they have made a kaleidoscope of pretty squares!

In case you haven’t checked out the landing page or watched my support video (embedded just below), please note that the interlocking version of each square is done from the bottom-up (like normal) and the overlay mosaic crochet option is made from the center-out (so there are no envelope borders needed).
