Overview

Celtic Cross Stitch takes inspiration from a wide variety of Celtic designs and explores the challenges of transferring them to patterns for counted cross stitch. Here are 30 fully detailed and charted projects, ranging from simple cards and pictures to a stunning rug and an embroidered border for an heirloom christening gown. Knotwork, key, and spiral designs are featured together with animal, plant and human forms. In addition a separate section charts a selection of classic Celtic alphabet designs. Some of the projects will appeal to experienced embroiderers, others to those who are new to the craft. Each project begins with clear, step-by-step instructions, lists the needed materials, and shows you the finished design. You'll find numerous ideas for alternative color schemes and variations on the basic designs as well. These and the pattern library of designs will inspire you to make up your own Celtic motifs and patterns.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Interest in Celtic design as applied to needlework has been increasing, with The Book of Kells and other manuscript treasures proving to be rich sources of design ideas. Designer Vickery has made good use of these sources for his own beautifully striking designs. The major part of his book consists of border designs and a fantastic original alphabet. Also included are several pictorial designs in sampler style. Lawther's (Christmas Craft Sourcebook, LJ 8/95) designs are adaptations of Celtic sources, particularly as they apply to knotwork and alphabets. Lawther also includes general instructions for working cross-stitch. Many of her projects very effectively use lines of black cross-stich for outline and separation, providing an alternative to the backstitch outlines frequently found in modern cross-stitch. Both books have step-by-step projects with full-color charts. In both books, a very effective use of vibrant color contrasts with the more subdued designs found in Angela Wainwright's Celtic Cross Stitch Samplers (Cassell/Sterling, 1995), which uses many of the same sources. Needleworkers will find these books inspiring sources of patterns for clothing and accessories as well as household items.
