One of my favorite techniques to Crochet in is Celtic Woven Crochet.
Here is a new piece of Handmade Home Decor made with this technique:
Having studied and done a fair amount of Irish Crochet, which is a type of Celtic art and/or craft, I feel that I can say that this Celtic Woven Crochet is exactly as the name says -- it is Celtic Crochet, or what is most commonly known as Irish Crochet style or method, pieces that are then woven together as layers to create a design -- and these designs I have are reversible!
It is a little more complicated than your average Crochet -- but I think it is a lot of fun and I like doing it all kinds of Colors - Contrasting and Complimentary!
This piece is done in 2 shades of Green (representing the plant and stems) -- and Bright Pink and Purple for the Flower petals! Quite colorful - typical in some Celtic art!!
Crocheted onto an Embriodery Hoop with a Crocheted Braid Loop, it is all ready for hanging, as shown in this photo in a small tree in my front yard:
Another Celtic Woven Crochet design - this time with a Star is here:
