Celtic Knot Pin

This Celtic Knot Pin features one of the simplest Celtic Knots you can weave so it works up very quickly for the perfect Irish accessory to any outfit.  I first created this design in 2013 in honor of St. Patrick’s Day and now I am re-publishing it here on the blog with video tutorials!
