Stitch Some Shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day

st patricks day knitting patternsSt. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have time to stitch a little green. I’m loving this collection of shamrock patterns I found on Ravelry (by the way, they just hit 3 million registered users, which is so awesome!).

Mary C. Gildersleeve’s St. Patrick’s Day Washcloth features a three-leaved shamrock worked in an eyelet pattern and is a free Ravelry download.

Another washcloth pattern can be found at Kris Knits. It uses garter stitch on a ground of stockinette to make the shamrocks stand out.

Vickie Howell has a cute mitered Bejeweled Shamrock pattern on her site that you can make with a scrap of sock yarn. If you don’t have a heat-setting tool, you could sew a blingy button to the center.

Add a four-leaf clover charm to your cell phone with this adorable pattern from Free Cute Knit.

And if you want to try a loom-knitted version, check out this shamrock pattern from Loom Lore.
