St. Patrick’s Day is less than 2 weeks away, and we’ve got the need for all things green! Green is traditionally worn on St. Patrick’s Day to give its wearer the luck of the Irish. Even if you don’t have Irish roots, our selection of green-themed patterns and workshops will leave you feeling jollier than a leprechaun who just found a pot of gold!
These Interweave patterns (sham) rock!
|Irish Lace Top
Exude Celtic charm each time you wear this delicate shell. The show stopping element of this lightweight piece is the floral insert that is inspired by Irish crochet.
|Solas Caomh Crochet Pattern
Spring’s warmth keeps slipping in and out of the Midwest, and we may experience a chilly St. Patrick’s Day this year. If you’re also putting up with inconsistent weather, keep the little ones warm and cozy on St. Patrick’s Day with this elegantly cabled baby blanket. If you have any friends or loved ones expecting this spring, crochet them a precious keepsake that is both beautiful and practical.
|Clover Camisole Knitting Pattern
What could be better than finding a four-leaf clover? Knitting this clover-adorned camisole and wearing it on March 17! Here at Interweave Yarn Fest, we’re all about creating pieces that can be used time and time again. This versatile camisole top can be worn alone on toasty summer days, or layered under a blazer when the weather gets chilly.
|Shamrock Fields Throw Pattern
If you’re hosting a party in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, this lacy crocheted throw is a must! The shamrock motifs are festive, yet subtle enough to decorate your furniture all year. If you want to make your throw extra spring appropriate, stick to a minty-green shade when selecting your yarn–just like the color in the photo!
