Want to know a secret?
Planning our Celtic Knits Club is one of the highlights of our year here at Stolen Stitches. It’s everything we love; beautiful yarn, bouncy cables, and breathtaking hand-knits.
And I bet you’re dying to find out more about this year’s knitting club, so let’s dive right in:
Celtic Knits Club 2024: Where Design meets Tradition.
For knitters who want to explore hand-knit cables inspired by the Islands of Ireland.
Last year, we introduced you to our brand new yarn Deas, spun for us by Donegal Yarns. You loved this beautiful blend of merino and mohair as much as we did, so we are introducing 6 new Deas colours, exclusive to the Celtic Knits Club 2024!
But more on the yarn a little later ;)
For this year’s club, we are taking our inspiration from the Islands of Ireland. Our coastline is peppered with islands which exist slightly apart from the mainland, allowing their own traditions to deviate, grow, and flourish. With this in mind, our designers Eimear Earley, Laura Perrem, and I are going to go on our own design journeys engaging with the theme of Islands.
Their way of life.
These designs will inspire you to grab your needles, get comfy, and celebrate knitted cables with us.

Our Celtic Knits Club is a place to explore hand-knit cables with knitters of all backgrounds from all around the globe. We come together for virtual launch parties for each installment, chat about our club patterns, and continue to support each other through posts and threads in Knithub.
If you’re new to Celtic Knits Club, you might like to hear about it from current members:
“I love the yarn, and I love the patterns! I am so glad I decided to join Celtic Knits Club 2023! Oh – and I have loved all the surprise extras! The tutorials are so helpful and while I have not participated in the chat, yet I find it very supportive. Joining the club was definitely one of the better decisions I have made.”-Beth
