It’s almost March, which means St. Patrick’s Day is upon us! Whether you want to celebrate the holiday with fun shamrock designs, or you’d rather channel the more traditional spirit of the Irish with Celtic knots and Irish crochet, I’ve rounded up a few patterns to get you in the spirit. So break out some green yarn and get a head start on some small projects for the festive holiday!

 

 shamrock pin You don’t need any knitting or crochet experience to craft this fun and festive Shamrock Pin, made with Vanna’s Choice yarn in Kelly Green and Fern. Just one skein will outfit a whole group of little leprechauns!
For a sturdy and classic Irish home decor item, try this spool-knit Shamrock hot pad, created with Lion Cotton in the Fern Green colorway. Perfect for showing off your Irish pride all year long!  shamrock pad
 celtic knot This uniquely Irish Celtic knot hot pad is knitted with a superknitter or spool knitter, and is just a basic i-cord interlaced into a traditional Celtic knot. This pattern calls for Lion Cotton in Fern Green and Rose.
Take your appreciation for all things Irish to the next level. Irish style isn’t just about shamrocks and Celtic knots. Irish crochet is another very distinct style of crafting that’s been part of Irish tradition for generations. To really represent your Irish heritage, try your hand at this Irish crochet shawl, made in Vanna’s Glamour.  irish crochet
