Rose of Inverness (PDF Knitting Pattern)
♫ The Music and Inspiration ♫
Cape Breton has a truly rich heritage of Celtic music with many world-class artists who hail from this uniquely beautiful corner of Canada. Rich intertwining of musical themes always create visions of beautifully interlaced knitted cables. Cape Breton's west coast is home to the Ceilidh (pronounced kay-lee) Trail - approximately 100 km (62 miles) of gorgeousness overlooking the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The tiny community of Inverness is found at its heart … wild roses abound, and so… the Rose of Inverness.
Céad míle fáiltea (a hundred-thousand welcomes)!
There are lots and lots of cables! Complimentary cable elements create a beautifully textured, circular blanket that finishes with a cabled I-cord edge. Worked from the centre outward, in the round, this pattern begins with Emily Ocker’s Cast On; this cast on allows the tail yarn to be pulled tight, all but eliminating the hole at the centre.
Both charts and written directions for charts are included in the pattern. Photo tutorials for the Emily Ocker Cast On and Vikkel Braid are included. The pattern contains 23 pages.
