Feeling lucky? Well, you ARE in luck because you have hit the pot o’ gold at the end of the rainbow with this roundup post of THIRTEEN lucky (or unlucky?) crochet patterns to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!
“A good friend is like a four leaf clover, hard to find and lucky to have.”Irish Proverb
Late summer. You know … that time of golden afternoons with acres upon acres of clovers growing wildly in an open field. I once knew a little girl that would spend an entire recess looking for a four-leaf clover.
While all of her friends were playing games, she was individually inspecting each clover carefully counting the leaves.
When she found one, she would proudly present it to her teacher who would keep it on her desk long after it was wilted. The little girl would beam proudly every time she caught sight of it on her teacher’s desk for she knew that her teacher valued the effort that she had shown.
Hey, Crafty Concept folks! It’s Sarah from The Plush Pineapple here to share another crochet pattern roundup with all of you!
Since St. Patrick’s Day is a month away, I thought it appropriate to share some patterns with you that represent all things rainbows, shamrocks, and leprechauns!
As I was researching for this post, I stumbled across the friendship quote you read at the beginning.
As rare as that four-leaf clover was in that wide-open field, so is the rarity of a good friend. I’m not referring to a friend that you just gossip with or overshare all of your problems to (guilty here). I’m talking about that friend that you enjoy meeting up with for coffee to simply enjoy each other’s company or that friend that you can count on for encouragement when you are having a bad day.
Since good friends are such a rarity, let’s make an effort to be that friend for someone else. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived…
…and lived well.”
I am going to kick off this St. Patrick’s Day Roundup with a pattern from right here on A Crafty Concept! This Crafty Rainbow Pillow has so much drool-worthy texture. It just screams for hugs and snuggles!
How cute is little Seamus the Shamrock?! I just love a good amigurumi pattern, and this shamrock by Jillian at Spin a Yarn Crochet is perfect! Several of these would make a great garland, or they would look adorable on a table or shelf!
This adorable Bobble Rainbow Appliqué was designed by yours truly! Could you tell by the golden pineapple in the picture? This would be an adorable addition to a coffee cozy, baby lovey, or blanket! Just head over to The Plush Pineapple to whip one of these up!
Shamrock cup cozies with a matching shamrock button? Whaaat??? The cuteness is too much for me here! Find the cozy and the shamrock pattern by Kathy at Kathy’s Kozies. This adorable shamrock appliqué can be added to anything else as well! They would make cute gift tags or hair clips!
I just can’t even with this Bauble Headband. The addition of the rainbow baubles is just a total cuteness overload! Kelsi at Crafting for Weeks outdid herself with this pattern. This is sure to be a great seller at markets or in shops with all of that bling!
This Pot o’ Gold Kawaii Cuddler at 3 AM Grace Designs is so CUTE! Look, the pot even has little feet!…And the blushing cheeks just give him so much personality! Any child would love to find this guy waiting at the end of a rainbow!
This Rainbow Earrings pattern is another perfect make for St. Patrick’s Day! Ashley from here at A Crafty Concept has the cutest ideas. How perfect would these be for a teacher gift or a quick market make? You could whip up a ton of these with next to no materials or time required!
What’s a pattern roundup without one of Sarah Zimmerman’s patterns from Repeat Crafter Me? I think the first thing I ever crocheted was a pattern from her blog! Now, there are shamrock hats a-plenty out there, but shamrocks for the earflaps??? This Shamrock Earflap Hat is pure genius!
I am seriously obsessed with this leprechaun hat basket from Hickory Highland Designs. How cute would it be on a teacher’s desk or on the kitchen table holding all sorts of yummy golden candies??? You could even set it on your market table for giveaway raffle tickets!
I just love the creative design of this Rainbow Backpack, another genius design by Sarah of Repeat Crafter Me. The rainbow flap really pops against the white backdrop, and the tassels are the perfect embellishment! This is sure to be a popular seller at spring markets!
If you make Donna’s pot o’ gold cuddler, than you absolutely have to make the matching Shamrock Kawaii Cuddler to go with it! They just look like they are destined to be pals! You can find this one at 3 AM Grace Designs as well!
Forgot to pick up something festive for the kids to wear to school on St. Patty’s Day? All you need is some green, black, and yellow yarn, and you can whip up this adorable Leprechaun Headband in under an hour! It’s another adorable pattern from Sarah at Repeat Crafter Me, and it’s sure to get some laughs and giggles!
I love the non-traditional colors of this Baby Rainbow Rattle. It’s so cute and modern! Ashley even includes instructions on adding the rattle inside. This is a great market item and sure to sell out!
That’s all! I hope you enjoyed all of these St. Patrick’s Day patterns! Now all that’s left to do is grab your yarn and hook and enjoy making all the rainbows, shamrocks, and leprechauns your heart desires! Be careful though! Making all thirteen might just undo all the luck that the shamrocks bring!
