The second version of this beautiful pattern was hooked by Vera Sollows. Earthy colours seem to suit this designs and she did a very nice job in her selections. I saw the rug in the flesh and it was spectacular. Unfortunately, back then, my camera skills weren't to be desired so it's cropped badly and too small to blow up for any detail so it appears blurry. Maybe there's a bit of camera shake in there as well. Vera used our spot dyes for the Celtic design. All in all it was fabulous. I liked it more than the version I was working on. The chocolate background makes the Celtic Knot pop whereas in my version there is less contrast. I really love the delicate Fleur-de-lis.
I took the rounded Celtic Knot's on the outer edge and used them in the border to tie the design together. It looks like Egg & Dart moldings.
