The Wearing of the Green

My youngest came home the other day with homework that stumped us for a minute. He was asked to create a set of questions for St. Patrick’s Day. Coming up with questions seemed to be easy but having them asked was a completely different situation.

So like good parents we skirted the actual question and ended up talking about our time in school and how if you didn’t wear green on St. Patrick’s Day then you were liable to be pinched by every little boy and girl that you came across. I remember many a time telling them they couldn’t pinch me because I had green underwear on. Who would’ve thought they expected proof!

So of course I thought of crochet and I decided to put together a little collection of St. Patrick’s Day themed Crochet Patterns by some great designers, so you won’t be caught without your green this  year.

What says St. Patrick’s Day like a 4-Leaf Clover? Check out this fun pattern set by Michelle over at FromHomeCrochet.com. You can add them to a pin for a boy or a headband for a little girl. Just make sure to wear them where people can see.
