Shamrock Hat

Whether you are Irish or not, it is always fun to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and wear a little green. I figured I would add a St. Patty’s touch to my Versatile Earflap Hat Pattern by attaching a great big shamrock.

The pattern I used for the shamrock can be found (free, of course) over at Crochet Spot. Rachel’s pattern was easy to follow, and I love how big the shamrock worked up in comparison to this itty, bitty 3-6 month size hat. The next time I make a hat like this I will test out some other ways to attach the shamrock besides sewing around all the edges. I think a little 3D effect could make this hat even cuter. If you give it a try, I would love to see what you do. You can email me at email hidden; JavaScript is required or find me on Facebook and share your creation there.

How do you like to wear your green – a hat, a shirt, jewelry, just a little or head-to-toe? Do you have any fun traditions for St. Patrick’s Day? I’m thinking we need to start some at our house.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great week!

    Hi Micah, I was wondering if u sew completely around each piece or do you sew it together and then stitch all the way around? It also looks bigger than the one on crochet spot, could you provide your measurement for how big the shamrock should be to get the same look? Thanks for all these hat patterns, I love each one and your pattern is by far the easiest to follow and has so many sizes! I look forward to every new post…

    Hi, Michelle! Thanks so much – I am glad you are enjoying the patterns. My shamrock measures about 4 inches across (not including the stem) so it did turn out about 1/2 inch wider than on Crochet Spot (I think I did use a G hook instead of F). I sewed around each piece separately to attach the shamrock to the hat, but I think it would look cute to just attach the pieces closer to the center and not sew around the edge too.
