Shamrock Keychain Amigurumi Pattern

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Enjoy the free Shamrock Keychain Amigurumi Pattern

Although the origin of this celebration is Irish, in an increasingly globalized world, it can be said that today it is celebrated worldwide, including Spain and of course, my land, Galicia.

Our common Celtic roots connect us historically and culturally with Ireland.

Thus, for example, the Tower of Hercules, in A Coruña, has Celtic elements, among which the statue of King Breogán stands out, who, according to Irish legends, founded Brigantia and built a Tower so high that it allowed one to see the coasts of Ireland.

Breogán is considered the mythological father of the Galician people, Galicia being poetically described as “Fogar de Breogán” (Home of Breogán) and this is even reflected in the Galician anthem.

To celebrate, I bring you a small detail that, as you know, is one of the symbols of Saint Patrick’s Day:

Hello!

As much effort you put into doing things right, there is something that escapes me. What happens is not for you?

At the hour of writing my amigurumi patterns I put all my attention, but is a process of many steps: the draft and the final on paper and then step into digital format, write, add photos, editing, proofreading, translation …

And when you least expect a number that can ruin the whole pattern escapes, or repeat a sequence, or you skip a turn, the self-correcting plays a trick on you … a thousand things can go wrong.

Thinking and thinking about how to make you things easier, because no matter how hard I will still be minor niggles, I decided to add a new section to the website with updates and bug patterns that make them.

This way you can easily check if there have been any changes to your employer and to download and updated from your account.
