I'm making an IOU Christmas gift for my brother and I'd like to make something with a Celtic knot pattern. Can anyone suggest a web site or book. Thanks in advance.

Found this (http://www.girlfromauntie.com/patterns/celtic/durrowcable.php) after a few pages of searching...and I think I've seen something here on this site that was a REALLY cool interlocked design, but I can't remember where it was...dang! :pout:

Good Luck,

Elsebeth Lavold's Viking Knits book has some great designs

I really like the pretzel braid in the Irish Aran pattern here (http://www.ramwools.com/index.cfm?pageID=33). (Scroll down to green sweater on left for free PDF.)

I just made my sister a cabled scarf with the chart from Samus (http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall05/PATTsamus.html). It was a really fun cable to do, after a couple of pattern repeats I got to lose the chart because I could tell where all the cables were going.
