Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Cross stitch, back stitch or Holbein (double-running) stitch

Pattern Description:

Pattern for a 6-ribbon interlaced "Celtic Knotwork" band, drafted as a table runner. Instructions for lengthening are included in the pattern. Easily adaptable as a tablecloth by using the corner and longest side 4 times.

Also contains 'bonus' page of three ends, for use with a single band of interlace, and shading suggestions.

One-quarter of the pattern prints on 8-1/2x11" (or size A4) paper; there are Right and Left halves of the end and center sections. To see the whole pattern, print out 2 each, Right and Left quarter of your chosen page, trim or fold one of each on the centerline, and tape together. Patterns are hand-drafted and transferred to a computer program for neatness. The designs are shown with a pale-gray background grid to indicate each individual stitch, and I include marked, color-cued basting lines for aid in counting stitches. A copy of the pattern without the background grid is optionally included in your purchase price, but made the PDF too large for Craftsy's format. If you'd prefer your pattern without the background grid, e-mail me after purchase (using or mentioning your PayPal e-mail, so I can identify you as a purchaser of this pattern!) and I will send you the grid-less version separately.

SAMPLE PATTERN: The second picture is a free sample pattern. If you'd like to see how my format works for you before you purchase anything, right-click and print or save it to your computer.

Outside Dimensions: View A: 142 x 338 stitches. The 'band' is a total of 43 stitches wide, woven of six 'ribbons,' each 4 stitches wide. NOTE: This is the same design as "Devnet I" (also available from my store here), only drafted on a larger scale; the individual ribbons for "Devnet I" are 3 stitches wide, for a total band width of 31 stitches. The corners and interlace segments for Devnet II can be interchanged between views, but will *not* interchange with the corners and segments from Devnet I.

Note on the name: The pattern names don't have anything to do with the design. This series will eventually run to a dozen or so patterns, and I need a way to easily tell which one a customer is talking about, so I chose "Devnet" from a list of Irish- and Scots-Gaelic names people had given their dogs and cats.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 142 x 338 stitches
