Crochet Pattern: Leprechaun Top Hat Applique

By Emilee Gettle – 2 Comments
I have always loved St. Patrick’s Day. My mom would make corned beef, sauerkraut, and all the traditional foods for our American way of celebrating our Irish heritage. While the food was delicious it was also a milestone in the year, which meant spring was right around the corner! After a long winter I was always more than ready to see my tulips again. This week I created this Leprechaun Top Hat Appliqué so you can start embellishing your linens or making pins for your friends. This is also a great project for adding a “touch of Irish” to kid’s clothes or hair accessories.

Skill Level:

Finished Size: 1″ (3 cm) long, 1″ (3 cm) wide

Fingering Weight Yarn (approximately 1 yard each of hunter green and light green)
Crochet Hook 7 (1.50 mm)

3 sc stitches = 1/2″ (1 cm)

Crochet Pattern: Leprechaun Top Hat Appliqué
Row 1: with hunter green, ch 7, sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across, ch 1, turn: 6 sc
Row 2-5: sc in each sc across, ch 1, turn
Row 6: change to light green, sc in each sc across, ch 1, turn: 6 sc
Row 7: 3 sc in first sc, sc in next 4 sc, 3 sc in last sc: 10 sc
Finish off.

Using a small piece of yarn, create three loops, or bunny ears. Then, take another small piece of yarn and tie the loops together at the base, to make a shamrock. Tack this onto the hat with needle and tread.
