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.
Danu is an original Celtic knot design suitable for all kinds of hand embroidery and is design #2 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. Danu 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.
This sample was stitched in four colors of 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, leave a space equal to one knot before starting the next knot so that the bead will be nestled against the background fabric. Please visit the Embroidery Gallery (click the blog entry or news article link above) to see stitched samples of all of Scarlett's embroidery designs.
