Pinteresting Projects: free St. Patrick’s Day crochet patterns
It’s not easy being green, except on March 17th – these free St. Patrick’s Day crochet patterns have you covered.
As an American, I know that St. Patrick’s Day is a big deal. I lived in Dublin for 6 months, and luckily got to see the parade while I was there. These free St. Patrick’s Day crochet patterns and tutorials are the perfect way to prepare for this year’s festivities.
This solid shamrock is made with three separate crocheted hearts, and sewed together with a simple stem. It’s a smart choice for a brooch, because the solid stitches will hide the pin.
Used as an edging or on its own, this shamrock trefoil pattern is simpler than it looks. We love the idea of using an aran weight yarn to make a green ombre blanket that will look classy all year long.
For the serial blanket makers out there, we love this classic shamrock granny square design. For this project, you make the squares separate from the shamrocks, making it an accessible project for beginners.
If you’re an amigurumi enthusiast, then you’ll love these miniature pots of gold. These are safe for kids to play with, and durable against rough and tumble playtime games. Maybe you should crochet a leprechaun to go with them!
Do your little ones need something green for St. Patrick’s Day? You can whip up this hair clip in no time flat, and reuse it year after year.
