Named for my daughter, Anna, who is the world traveller in our Irish family, Celtic Traveller features an attractive pairing of two popular cable stitch patterns nestled closely together in a half-drop style. The proximity of the patterns to one another create a composition of work that looks both intricate and visually appealing.
