A counted cross stitch pattern of a Celtic cross.
This design is based on Celtic knotwork carved on the North Cross, one of two high crosses at Ahenny, County Tipperary, Ireland. The crosses are believed to date from the ninth century and the designs are believed to have been based on metal work from the same period.
This cross stitch pattern puts a 21st century twist on an ancient design. Perfect for lovers of Celtic art and those who want a connection to ancient Ireland.
The pattern file includes two versions of the chart (one in black and white and one in colour), symbol key and a colour image of the finished design.
The second file includes basic instructions and stitching tips.
