This beautiful square, October Knot, features two circles that are being wrapped with a continuous loop that goes over and under in a Celtic knot type way. I love how intricate it looks!
As always, these large Celtic knot squares can be crocheted using one of two techniques: interlocking crochet or center-out, overlay mosaic crochet. You’ll receive the full written pattern and charts for both techniques.
If you’re new to these colorwork techniques, start with my tutorials.
We are nearly through with this series of squares (2023 is almost over!) but if you’re just joining us, start at the landing page for the Celtic knots series.
I just love the color combo of dark blue with gold! CrochetCarob’s photos are always fantastic!
Eva used a wonderful fall-colored yarn for her Main Color (MC) that changes from yellow to red!
This month, like every month, I’m thankful for my testers!

Overlay Mosaic Crochet
The overlay mosaic crochet version is done from the center-out so we don’t have to worry about any cut ends when we join our squares!
The mosaic crochet charts have been adjusted from their interlocking crochet counterparts. They are solid (there are no interlocking mesh dots on it) and they do not have the unnecessary border lines.
The full chart is 77 x 77 and will finish to about 19″ square. Take note, you’ll receive the top 1/4 of the x-marked chart that gets repeated for all 4 sides of the square.
