6 Ways to Wear the Celtic Journey Collection

Are your needles craving textured stitches and captivating cables? Our new collection, Celtic Journey, is filled with wonderful patterns that transition from cool winter months into the fickle months of spring – plus, those cables! We simply can’t resist casting on a new project right away.

We’ve chosen three patterns from our new Celtic Journey collection and styled each two different ways. Let’s get started with a timeless classic: the cabled sweater.

Barra Sweater by Patricia Duncan

PRETTY IN PLAID: Casual Friday at work never looked so good! Don’t be afraid of mixing texture with prints – try pairing this classic cabled sweater with a plaid skirt or pants for casual cool ensemble.


GIRLS NIGHT OUT: Transition from your work wardrobe to a fun friday night out with your BFFs – simply layer a cabled sweater over a fun frock or skirt. Pair it with coordinating accessories and shoes in a minimal color palette to create this chic look.

Antrim Hat by Sandra Nesbitt


URBAN COOL: A rustic wool hat fits with your city style just as well as when you’re camping or hiking. Pair an oversized dress shirt with skinny jeans and a well-loved leather jacket for an eclectic-cool look that takes you from brunch to dinner.


LAIDBACK LUXE: This look doesn’t have you sacrifice comfort for style – get the best of both worlds with a cozy sweater, velvet leggings and a coordinating wool hat. Up the luxe factor with a few accessories like a statement-making necklace, bold earrings and a bracelet cuff.

Dealla Cardigan by Cassie Castillo


COFFEEHOUSE CONNOISSEUR: A cabled cardi gets an easy update by pairing it with carefree summer essentials like a simple dress and your favorite pair of sandals. For a fun touch, try adding a brooch to play up the textures of the cardigan.


NINE TO FIVE STYLE:A celtic-inspired cardigan makes its debut in your workweek style. Dress up a simple cream blouse and basic black pants with a cabled cardigan in a contrasting color to make it the focal point of the outfit.

You can find these three lovely patterns and more in our new collection, Celtic Journey – available as a print book, an eBook or choose your favorite as an individual pattern download – find them all HERE.
