In case you hadn't noticed by now, I love Celtic knots. There is something about the elegance of flowing, twisting and woven lines that I find graceful and soothing. The design is done using a combination of cross stitch and specialty stitches, with lots of sparkle for a romantic feel.

* The DMC and Dinky Dyes are not an exact match, the DMC 99 is a variegated colour.
** These are not exact matches – Mill Hill beads are slightly larger than Delicas so there may be a couple of spots where they are a tight fit.
*** These two are not very close matches at all, Mill Hill has a very limited range and nothing comes close on these.
Floss estimates are for 36 count fabric stitching over two, one strand for cross stitch and 1-2 for specialty stitches as directed. If you are using a lower count of fabric, you'll want to adjust the amount
of floss accordingly.
