X-Calibre Celtic Cross by Carol Leather.

X-Calibre Celtic Cross. is steeped in history and predates Christianity. It was first used by the pagans. These people referred to it as the "Sun Cross" or the "Sun Wheel" and it also represented the Norse god Odin.

According to legend, the Celtic Cross was introduced by St Patrick when he tried to convert the pagans into Christianity in Ireland.

What I have written above conflicts with each other... if the pagans used it first, then how could St Patrick try to convert them by introducing the same symbol? ... That is something I will leave to you to wonder on.

X-Calibre Celtic Cross.
You will see from this design, as there are no fill patterns it isn't strictly Blackwork, it's more linear.  Using this method, it allows for the knot work detail to be very clear even though this is actually a small project.... and it shows perfectly just how effective it can be.  Available on 2 different fabrics and in 2 different colour ways.
