So, you guys may not know this about me but I actually don’t care too much about holidays. I don’t decorate and for the most part I can’t even get into exchanging gifts and baking! I love to bake and I actually love giving gifts, knowing someone will love them that is. But as I move farther and farther away from my family I just can’t get my “want to celebrate” up. Eh. But you know what I do like? Seasonal crochet items! Halloween/fall earrings,Β snowflakes, and cupcakes. Well, I made some more:

What do you think?

The shamrocks are super easy to make:

I used DMC floss and a #2 steel crochet hook.

ch 8, sc into second st from the hook, sc across.

ch 1, sl st into sc,* ch 4, tr 4 times into sc, ch 4, slip st into sc.*

repeat from * to * twice more. Fasten off. πŸ˜€

And for the Easter eggs:

4 different colors of yarn or floss

I haven’t made these guys w/ regular yarn but you could probably use a G hook and it would work. Turn after each row.

W/ first color: Ch 8, sc into second ch from hook -7 sc
Ch 2, sc twice into first sc, sc across, sc twice into last St. – 9 sc
W/ second color: ch 2, sc twice into first sc sc across, sc twice into last st -11 sc
W/ third color:Β turn, ch 2, skip st, dc into next st, *ch 1, dc2tog w/ first leg(dc) of the st in the same st as the last dc then skip a st and place the next leg (dc) into the next st, * repeat from * to * 3 more times, ch 1, dc into last st -4 dc2tog, 2 dc
W/ 4th color: ch 1, sc2tog in first 2 sts, sc across, sc2tog I last 2 sts- 9 sc
Ch 1, sc across -9 s
W/ first color: ch 1, s2tog in first two sts, sc across, sc2tog last two sts -7 sc
W/ second color: ch 2, skip sc, DC into next St, ch 1, dc2tog w/ DC in same St as last DC, skip St, DC I to next St, ch 1, DC into same St, skip St, dc2tog into next St, ch 1, dc2tog, dc into same St, DC into last St.

Try out the pattern and let me know how it works for you. πŸ˜€

Also, just in case you were wonder, I have now added both the Meghan scarf and the Brittany scarf patterns to my website for $3.99.

And I’m working on writing up the pattern for the Amanda scarf,
