Diamond Hill Loop Celtic Cable Knitting Pattern by Studio Knit

My Diamond Hill Loop Celtic Cable Knitting Pattern is inspired by the rugged terrain and hiking trails off the Western Coast of Ireland. This pattern can be knitted up to create a scarf or pillows. Attach multiple panels together to create blankets, afghans, and throws of any size desired. This gorgeous design is a fun project to knit up for St. Patrick’s Day and all year round. Find some quiet time for yourself, patiently knit the pattern row-by-row, and watch your Diamond Hill Loop Celtic Cable design emerge. If you love this pattern, you’ll love my entire collection of cable stitches, too.

KNITTING PATTERN + CHART for Diamond Hill Loop Celtic Cable

Pattern Construction

This pattern consists of 60 stitches and a 32-row repeat using 5 different cable stitches to create this beautifully detailed design. While knitting this motif, you will create a combination of the following knit stitch patterns:

  • Irish Moss Stitch
  • Mini Cable Ribbing
  • 3-Rib All Knit Braids
  • Reverse Stockinette Stitch
  • Diamond Rope Cables with an Irish Moss center

Color-Coded System

There are 5 different cable stitches in this pattern. I have created a color-coded system in both the written and chart patterns to easily discern the different cable stitches at a glance. Hope it helps!

IRISH MOSS KNIT STITCH EDGES (optional)
