Here’s a little Irish Rose motif I worked up for St. Pat’s day, it’s about 5″ in diameter. The pattern is offered free on Lion Brand’s website. You have to sign up for a free account but I think it’s worth it because they offer many free patterns. I like the 3 dimensional aspect of this little rose and think it would make a nice decoration on a hat. It works up very quickly. For technical details such as hook size and yarn see my Ravelry project page.
I enlisted my croaking frog to add some green to the photograph.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
