Caer is an original Celtic knot design suitable for all kinds of hand embroidery and is design #3 of the Legend of Merlin series created by Scarlett Rose. Learn the twilling stitch, the latest embroidery craze since candlewicking! Or choose your favorite embroidery stitch, such as the stem stitch or back stitch, for stitching this beautiful Celtic knot. Caer can also be Sashiko stitched!
The pattern includes step by step instructions and pictures on how to do the twilling stitch, a textured looking knotted embroidery stitch used in the sample block shown here. The step-by-step pictures show how to make this knotted stitch for right or left handed stitchers.
The sample was stitched in #5 pearl cotton thread to clearly show the details of the Celtic knotwork. Choose your own colors and/or combination of colors for your own project.
This full size 8 inch Celtic knot may be enlarged or reduced as needed to fit different projects. When adding beads while doing the twilling stitch with #5 pearl cotton thread, leave a space equal to one knot before starting the next knot so that the bead will be nestled against the background fabric.

Well known for her Celtic knotwork designs for applique, sashiko, embroidery and quilting, Scarlett also enjoys designing delightful scrap quilts based on traditional patterns. She brings a unique perspective to these redesigned classic patchwork patterns, keeping the vintage look but using easier techniques for the construction.
All of Scarlett's e-patterns contain clickable links to Galleries showing more samples of each design and pictures of completed projects made by quilters who have purchased her patterns. Links are also provided for you to buy specialty notions like bias bars, fusible bias tape makers, preprinted Celtic knot blocks for embroidery or sashiko, thimbles, needles and other specialty items.
Please visit Scarlett's Etsy store, ScarlettRoseCeltic, to purchase e-patterns if you live in a country belonging to the European Union.
Until further notice, customers living in the countries belonging to the European Union will not be able to purchase e-patterns from Scarlett's Craftsy store because of the new VAT digital goods law that went into effect on January 1st. Any attempt to pay for e-patterns through PayPal will result in an error message for EU customers. All EU countries are blocked out.
All other international customers may purchase e-patterns without any problems. Scarlett is sorry for this necessary restriction, but the new VAT law is far too cumbersome for her to deal with for her independent pattern business.
