Celtic Weave Stitch Ideas

If you are a fan of texture, I’m sure you will love crochet celtic weave stitch! It’s one of the most decorative geometric stitches, but its beauty lays in the fact that it imitates woven fabric. It’s a perfect choice for many crochet projects, so whether you’re planning to design something by yourself, or recreate someone else’s design, it’s time to try it!

How to crochet celtic weave stitch?

This technique creates what looks like a woven fabric, but the lines cross diagonally – as opposed to basketweave stitch. Celtic weave stitch gets its unique cabled look by carefully placed front post stitches.

To achieve lacy look we use treble crochet stitches, but you can find versions in which we use shorter stitches, such as double crochet. The shorter the stitch, the denser our celtic weave stitch.

You can work it in rows, as well as in the round.

Is crochet celtic weave stitch hard to learn?

It’s a technique for ambitious beginners or intermediate crocheters, because it uses post stitches and requires some basic skills.

Where can I use celtic weave stitch?

Celtic weave stitch stretches nicely, so it’s a great choice for home accessories that are heavily used. Pillows, blankets, or covers of all kinds will look fantastic in this stitch. Additionally, it’s perfect for winter accessories, because the fabric it creates is quite dense (when not stretched). Think about cowls, winter hats and long scarves.
Decorative qualities of this stitch make it a perfect detail as well, so try mixing it up with simpler techniques – it will look stunning!

Celtic Weave Throw Pillow by MJ’s Off The Hook Designs

Create a truly stunning pillowcase with Michelle’s celtic weave pattern. Long trebles she used to create the weave stretch a lot, so that you can see the color of the pillow through the openwork. As you can see, the rustic look wouldn’t be so stunning without the tassels and the matte finish of bulky cotton yarn.

Celtic Weave Nesting Baskets Version by Shapash

Shapash took Michelle’s free pattern and elevated it to the next level, because what’s better than a beautiful weave? A beautiful weave in two colors, of course! You can clearly see that the combination of cream and pink is spot on, but so is cream and green. Tall basket works perfectly as a water bottle holder.

Celtic Weave Scarf by Claire

Could this stitch be a yarn sampler? Of course it could! You don’t have to restrict yourself to one color, so try going for stripes instead. The nature of this stitch will help make color transitions look natural, just like in Claire’s work pictured below. Her scarf is not only textured, but multicolored.

Celtic Weave Triangle Shawl by Siobhan Taft

In the first part of the article I mentioned that combining celtic weave with other stitches is a great idea, and here is the proof!

This shawl is a custom piece designed by Siobhan, so there’s no pattern for it.

Celtic Weave Stitches by KPC Yarn and Amutushka Amur

Neutrals are always a good idea, and you can see it in these two examples below. Beauty of the combination of yarn and stitch is what makes or breaks the project, so it’s a really good idea to learn how to approach these things. Brownish tones will fit any interior, because they are neutral and add cosiness to the place.

Puffy Celtic Weave Blanket by Heavenly Stitches Co.

This version of criss cross pattern is somewhat different, because it’s done in finger knitting. But it’s a blog about crochet, you’ll say – and you are right! Well, this project most certainly can be done with the use of tunisian crochet hook, although I admit I haven’t tried it. Do you have any idea how to crochet it with a regular hook? If so, let me know in the comments!
