Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sometimes referred to as "the work of angels" because of their elaborate spirals, interlacings, and knotwork, Celtic designs have long been used to create fine art. Their distinctive patterns have appeared on stone- and metalwork, in jewelry, and on magnificent illuminated manuscripts. Now the enduring beauty of this ancient are form is available in a collection specially designed for those who love to do embroidery and needlepoint.

Dutch artist and designer Co Spinhoven has adapted over 300 unique designs—with all their compelling strength, drama, and simplicity—from the Book of Kells, the Tara Brooch, the Petrie Crown, and many other authentic Celtic sources.

Divided into four basic sections, Celtic Charted Designs contains step, fret, and key patterns; spiral work, knotwork, and biomorphic patterns (designs with images resembling forms of living organisms). Patterns range from simple step motifs to ornate, highly stylized elements modeled after animal and plant life. Most designs are suitable for creating lovely needlepoint pillows, cross-stitch pictures, latch-hook rugs, knitted or crocheted garments, woven fabrics, and much more.

An easy-to-follow text includes explanatory notes on designs, many of which are presented here for the first time in charted form. Here are patterns that will not only inspire needleworkers but will be welcomed by artists, craftspeople, and students of Celtic history and culture everywhere.

Original Dover (1987) publication.

Sometimes you want to get going with your project without reinventing the wheel. I had a needlework project in mind with a celtic knot theme. After spending some time trying to design it myself, I took up this Dover title. Even new, this book is cheap. The price was even better when I considered how much time it saved me. The charts are clear and understandable. You can never go wrong with a Dover title.
