Monday – and a pilsner pattern. :)

Happy Monday! Or are Mondays not your thing to celebrate? Today is, after all, St. Patrick’s Day… so there’s a thing to celebrate. If you’re into that sort of thing. Do you need something fun to go with your St. Paddy’s Day festivities? Or just want to add a “just in case” applique to your collection? Remember the seasonal earrings I made last year? You know, the shamrocks and pilsner guys… well here’s a pattern so you can make your own: Β (Also, sorry I didn’t post this earlier for those of you who like to plan)

* Do not sc across the top row of white *
For St. Pat’s I paired the pilsner with a 3 leaf clover and attached it to a green bow (see left). However, I’m sure this sort of thing could be used for a lot of things, like a bachelorette party or something where you’d need beer. πŸ˜€

For the shamrock:
Row 1: Chain 9, sc into second ch from hook, all the way across DC into last ch -7 scs, 1 dc
Leaves:Β Ch 1, sl St into DC, below horizontal threads .
Ch 4, Tr 4 times into dc, ch 4, sl St into dc again – do this 3 times

Again, I wish I was more consistent with my updates but I just don’t know what to talk about. I’ve been a little blue these last couple of weeks and it’s made it even harder for me to be interested in doing much of anything. I’m still working on stuff, just finished a Willow sack variation and the Roxanne hat, and getting a couple of more summer type of items going- hopefully should get ’em done soon.
