Irish Baby, Free shamrock garland pattern and New March Hat on my pattern store!

Click here to see this brand new pattern on Etsy!!
My New St Pat's Hat for a tiny little leprechaun!! Must say, had to look up the spelling on that last.

Okay, I'm kinda proud, I like how quick this little hat is. It only takes you 30-40 minutes to make the smaller sizes, and yet it's made from a more delicate looking sc stitch (except for the brim). Super!! The chains in the pattern make it faster than that clunky but much-loved old dc. Ladies (and guys), yes that dc is fast, but it looks so homey!! I mean, I like homey, but not THAT homey! And when I say homey, I mean home-made, ha!

And a sweet little brim that looks old-fashioned, almost like a little derby. So appropriate for a St. Paddy's day baby hat.

Click on the link right above the picture to see the crochet pattern on etsy, and HERE IS HOW TO MAKE the shamrock garland! Just crochet a tiny circle of three chains, joined, then form three leaves in that circle: (ch 2, dc, ch 2, sl st in center), three times - then ch 9 for the stem to the next shamrock, and you're off!! The pattern shows you more, obviously: the cap pattern, a larger shamrock garland, lots of photos...have fun!!
