The Celtic Weave stitch is probably the hardest stitch of the entire crochet along. Its a beautiful cable stitch that looks like woven strands. Its a thick stitch that makes beautiful and never fails to stun.
You can find the links for all the previous squares in the crochet along here. You can purchase the ad free, printable version of the pattern on Ravelry for just £2.40 which includes a weekly update with the next square
This pattern is written in US terms, but the UK translation is below.
Double crochet (dc) = treble crochet
Treble crochet (tr) = double treble crochet
For this square you will need a 4 mm hook
Row 1. In the 4th chain from your hook (turning chain counts as a stitch) make a dc. Dc in each chain across – 30 stitches
Row 2. Chain 1 and make the alternate turning chain in the first stitch. *Skip 2 stitches and make a front post treble crochet in the next 2 stitches. Go back to the 2 skipped stitches and make a front post treble crochet (fptr) in the first skipped stitch, working in front of the previous stitches, then make another in the second skipped stitch*
Repeat between *and* then dc in the last stitch.
Row 3. Chain 1 and make the alternate turning chain in the first stitch. Make a back post treble crochet (bptr) around the next two stitches. *skip the next 2 stitches and make a bptr around the next 2 stitches. Go back to the skipped stitches and make bptrs first around the first skipped stitch, then around the 2nd. You need to work behind the first 2 bptr you made so that you start creating the woven effect*
To get to the skipped switches you will need to work in front of the previous stitches. If you’re not sure how to do this I recommend watching the video. You will find this part around 9 minutes in.
Repeat between *and* ending with 2 bptr around the last 2 fptr in the row below, then dc in the last stitch of the row.
Rows 4 – 15. repeat rows 2 and 3
Use a 3.5mm hook for the border
Across the top and bottom make 1 sc in each stitch.
For the sides make 2 sc in the side of each row
