Shamrockin’ Around the Block

St Patrick's Day crochet blog hop

Good Monday everyone! It’s another one of those Monday posts but unfortunately this week it’s my fault. I was helping organize this blog hop (you may have seen the banner above) and I got my dates mixed up. I can only assume I didn’t have enough coffee when I put the date down but once I realized my mistake, it was too late… so a Monday post it is. It’s all good, right? No harm, no foul, and everyone is happy with a new pattern a day early.

So this week’s pattern, in addition to being a new one for this St Patrick’s Day Blog Hop is a new bracelet. I love wearing crochet accessories, they’re light weight and pretty good conversation starters. I’ve had some good compliments from people about my bracelets and earrings in the past! And I like to wear something small, makes me feel connected to my craft and when someone says “that’s super cute!” I get to say “thanks!” and know I made it. That’s pretty cool, right?

This bracelet is pretty easy, you could make it in one day (I did) and change up your colors as you’d like. I made the base off-white and the shamrocks green but you can reverse that if you’d like. I did carry the yarn all through the design but I dropped the green when it was just the white (creating a floater in the back) to limit how much you’d see the green from the front. Little tricks to make sure the right side looks good, ya know?

Terms/ Stitches used

  • RS: right side
  • Ch: chain
  • St: stitch

Notes

  • This pattern is worked in 2 parts: the Body and the Edging. The Body is worked back and forth in rows, with a turn at the beginning of the row. The Edging is worked around the Body in one round.
  • The ch-1 at the beginning of the rows does not count as a stitch.
  • Every stitch in this pattern is a single crochet. The directions will only tell you what color (ie: Color A, Color B, etc…) and the number in the parentheses tells you how many scs to make.
  • You will need to know how to create a slipknot on your hook for this pattern.
  • In the example, the inactive yarn is carried behind the active. If this is confusing, you might want to check out the helpful Moogly video on tapestry.
  • Color A is off-white (Aunt Lydia’s Size 10 crochet thread in Antique White), color B is green (Aunt Lydia’s Size 10 crochet thread in Myrtle Green), and color C is orange (Aunt Lydia’s Size 10 crochet thread in Pumpkin).
