Illuminated Knits is a collection of four knitting patterns by Scottish designer Lucy Hague, inspired by the rich colours and intricate decorations found in illuminated Celtic manuscripts.

These designs (two shawls, a blanket and a pullover) all make use of a slipped-stitch cable technique which creates contrasting colour effects, without the need for intarsia or stranded knitting.

All of the patterns are presented in both charted and written form, and full explanations are provided for every stitch, along with a brief guide to selecting colours for your project.

With photos shot on location at Inchcolm Abbey in the Firth of Forth, this book aims to provide an inspiring reinterpretation of Insular Celtic art, using inventive cable-knitting techniques.
