This is a free tutorial for the Celtic Weave crochet stitch. This beautiful crochet stitch is for intermediate level crocheters and up.
A Celtic knot symbolizes loyalty, faith, friendship, and love though a series of interwoven loops with no start or finish. These continuous twists and twirls represent eternity.
Surprisingly, this distinctive design may date further back to the Romans or even the Byzantine Empire. Whatever the origins however, the Celts definitely perfected the art, and the design cannot be seen without thinking of Ireland and its rich history.
While the beautiful Celtic weave itself isn’t a knot, the crochet stitch is reminiscent of the Celtic knot. The stitches continue seemingly off the project to continue on forever.
If you would like to add some Celtic inspiration to your project, consider using this beautiful, textured Celtic weave crochet stitch. Continue reading below to learn how this stitch is created.

I did a Facebook LIVE about a month ago and I asked my followers what they would like me to make. Well, I am trying to work through my very long list and one of the requested items was the Celtic Weave Stitch.
So, here I would like to explain to you step-by-step how to do this very pretty, but not for beginner, stitch. If you have experience with FPDC’s and BPDC’s, then this will be easy to understand. But if you have never done these stitches, please learn them by clicking HERE first. Some crocheters use FPTR’s and BPTR’s, either of them work. It might just look more stretchable with the TR’s.
If you have trouble understanding the written and photo tutorial, be sure to check out the video tutorial at the end as well.
