You know what, I love holidays for crocheting. It makes designing just a little bit easier, because I get to make cute things and it’s fun and I don’t have to think TOO HARD on what to make. So, this week I’m making something that’s St. Pat’s Day themed. This design is a bit like my pilsner design from last year, bit bigger but still fun. I hope you like it!

Well, I do hope you like this pattern and have some fun with it for St. Paddy’s Day. You could make the beer section green or a nice honey colored, if you like a darker beer. Maybe attach a shamrock to it and pin it to your hat. Also new this week is the Natalie Cowl, another tapestry crochet design. I’m loving these kinds of designs and I hope you do too, because it might be a while before I lose interest in them. 🙂 Win a copy of the Natalie Cowl here!
