Celtic Knot Bracelet

Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, this Celtic Knot Bracelet is a great project for beginners and experienced crocheters alike.  It uses a small amount of yarn and some simple jewelry techniques.  I created this design in honor of National Crochet Month in 2014 and it has been one of our most popular patterns.

I love to create Celtic Knot jewelry and have created several Celtic Knot jewelry patterns you can see in my Etsy shop here.

I think you will enjoy making this project and wearing it this month in honor of two holidays – National Crochet Month and St. Patrick’s Day! (Since both happen in the same month, I will be posting several more free Celtic Knot projects with video tutorials over the next few weeks.)

Now there are several videos on our Youtube Channel to go with each step of this project  – all are marked with red text.

Skill Level:  Easy (Beginner)


Sassy Skein Key West Karibbean Kotton – 1 skein (Kiwi) or any light weight (Size 3/DK) yarn

***Click on any text you see in red to watch the video tutorial***

Finished Measurements:

Bracelet length plus clasp = 7 ½” (19 cm)

Knot = 3” L x 2” W (7.5 cm L x 5 cm W)

Crocheted cord – Make 2:  (Approx. 15” (38 cm)

Ch 70

Working in the back bar of each chain, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. Fasten off leaving an 8” (20 cm) tail for assembly.

**To make bracelet longer by an inch (2.5cm), increase crocheted cord by 6 chains;  To make bracelet shorter by an inch, decrease crocheted cord by 6 chains

Weaving the Knot:

The free Celtic Knot Diagram for this project is found in the Celtic Knot Crochet Resource Library – details of how to gain access to the free library are found here.

Place diagram on cork square and secure with pins.

With Right Side facing up, place 1 crocheted cord end on block lining up the 11th sc from end with the red star in diagram and secure with a pin.

Continue to lay cord down in pattern of the knot following the arrows along the blue shaded path.  Make sure to pass correctly at all crossings- under or over.  Use pins to hold cord in place.

With Right Side facing up, place other crocheted cord on diagram lining up the 11th sc with the 2 red stars and lay cord down along the white path following the arrows.  Again, make sure to pass correctly at all crossings – under or over – using pins to hold cord in place.

Adjust all loops and spaces in knot so they are even.  Adjust all 4 ends of cords so they are the same length – each would have approximately 11 scs from edge of knot.

(Note: For a bracelet that is shorter by 6 chs, you will have 8 scs on either side of the knot; For a bracelet that is longer by 6 chs, you will have 14 scs on either side of the knot)


(Optional: For all joinings listed below – use hot glue instead)

Overlap ends of cords to form a point using photo as a guide.

Secure both ends with yarn tails and needle.

With yarn needle and yarn tails secure all crossings on the Wrong Side. Weave in all ends.

Attach ribbon clamps, jump rings and clasp to each end of bracelet.

Now it is ready to wear in honor of St. Patrick’s Day!

    1. Hi! Thank you for visiting! All of the video tutorials for this project can be found by clicking on all the text written in RED. I just checked them and they all should work. Hope they help you make some beautiful bracelets. 🙂 Happy crocheting!

  1. Would need one to fit a 38” tom40” bust. Would love to make it for my Irish hertiage. I’m leaving for a trip to Isreal Saturday, March16, and be gone 9 days. If I don’t respond immediately it’s because I’m out of the country. Thank You

  2. I LOVE your website. I’m 40% Irish according to Ancestry and my DNA. I love your Celtic Knot bracelet, and am going to make it. BUT what I REALLY LOVE is your Glendalough shrug! I want to purchase that pattern from you. I’m a very experienced crocheted, I can see it’s differicult, but I’m VERY SURE I can do it. Please consider selling me the pattern, I would so treasure making it and wearing it as part of my heritage from my Grandfather, Joseph Reynolds, that’s where my Irish came from. Anxiously awaiting to hear back from you. Sincere Irish Blessings, Twyla Jean

    1. Hi Twyla – Thank you for visiting my blog. So glad you like the Celtic Knot themed crochet designs/projects. I am hoping to publish more of my Celtic Knot designs over the course of this year and I will think about the Glendalough Shrug. What size would you need the pattern in? That is usually the most difficult part of publishing a garment pattern. Please check in with me via email next time. Happy crocheting! Jennifer

  3. I love the celtic bracelet. Just purchased everything I needed. Just wondering if its ok to use the foundation single crochet instead of chain 70 ? Thank you for the free design 🙂

    1. Hello!
      Yes, it would be okay to use the foundation single crochet but both sides of this type of cord might not look the same. Also, sometimes the foundation single crochet cords are very stretchy so you might want to experiment and work fewer stitches.
      Hope this helps and that your bracelet turns out great!
