Shamrock Granny Square Crochet – Pattern Link. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!. Create this great little project to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on March 17th.
Here’s a bit of general knowledge about St. Patrick’s Day, if you fancy reading it!
St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated all over the world on the 17th March each year to mark the anniversary of St. Patrick’s death (Patron saint of Ireland). This information was found from www.history.com
St. Patrick’s Day observes of the death of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. The holiday has evolved into a celebration of Irish culture with parades, special foods, music, dancing, drinking and a whole lot of green.
Anyway, enough of the history lesson! Let’s get on with the Shamrock Granny Square Crochet project.
Carrying on with the St. Patrick’s Day theme from a couple of weeks ago where I made the Shamrock Crochet Brooch Pattern – Free Link. I took the inspiration from this to make a solid granny square to celebrate this theme.
For your Shamrock Granny Square Crochet you will need:
It was made using the Tunisian crochet method. It’s a bit like a cross between crocheting and knitting, where you keep several stitches on the hook. I had never heard of it, so thought I’d give it a try.
Apparently, they sell special hooks that look similar to a knitting needle but with a crochet hook point?! I will have to see if I can purchase one on my travels, or if anyone knows where they sell these please let me know.
Good morning my lovelies and a Happy Mother’s Day to all. I’m currently still in bed with a cup of tea (made by myself!) waiting for my cherubs to wake up, remember it’s Mother’s Day and come say hello…..
So I thought I’d share with you one of my projects I completed a couple of weeks ago. I made a teal chunky throwover, this was my favourite crochet project so far!
I do not have the pattern for it, I freestyled it, lol! I was originally trying out a pattern for a poncho and it went from there. I used a no. 10 hook, doubled up the yarn to make it chunkier and completed it in a continuous 2x dc, ch1, sk 1 st of previous row, 2x dc into next st pattern.
I was impressed with how it turned out.
I just kept going until it was the size I wanted. Added a few simple rows of single crochet all around edge ….. ta-da finished!
Absolutely love it, it’s so comfy and soft it’s now my go to blanket when I just want to cuddle up on the sofa with my gorgeous man and chill out.
The only problem with it – the colour! It clashes with my front room decor!!! (I originally made it for my sons games room!). Sorry son, you can have it back once I’ve made another one….
I had some yarn leftover so I made myself a chunky cowl in the same pattern. So now when I’m out and about I’m nice and toasty wrapped up in a bit of comfort.
I hope you all have a lovely Mother’s Day, put your feet up, eat chocolate and most importantly, relax! You’re all doing a fantastic job 😘
I switched the yellow yarn for black (no yellow yarn in my bag of tricks!).
Create your brooch from the poppy pattern link above.
Tidy brooch up by sewing in the loose ends and attach the brooch clasp to the back of the crocheted poppy.
It crocheted up quite quickly and I loved the leaf design. The pattern was quite easy to follow too.
These could be turned into brooches, button holes, handbag and hair accessories or added to blankets, scarves, cushions …. endless ideas!
Next time I might try adding a black button or bead in the middle.
I hope you have enjoyed making your very own Poppy Crochet Brooch. If you need any further guidance please contact me at Beejui Creations
