BONUS IRISH CROCHET PATTERNS:Doris Chan's Light Green Crochet Skirt - "This light green crochet skirt is calling your name. This is the perfect free crochet pattern you should be making for the hot summer season. The yarn is nice and light so it will keep you cool." - Well, it's not calling MY name, but that's probably only because I don't bear much resemblance to this adorable young model (I think that might be Doris Chan herself)!
Petra Monaco's Shamrock and Leprechaun - "Using a free crochet St. Patrick's day pattern is great for this holiday. Get in the spirit and become Irish for a day. This leprechaun and shamrock are great to hang from the rear view mirror of your car. You might also want to sew it to a bag or piece of clothing for a nice embellishment.
BONUS IRISH KNIT STITCH AND PATTERN:
Irish Mesh Stitch - "The Irish Mesh stitch is a lace
stitch without the extremely feminine characteristic which most
lace patterns offer. Knitted in a multiple of 3 stitches and
done in a 4-row repeat, this stitch is easy to remember and is a
quick knit. The Irish Mesh stitch provides versatility which
makes it great for many types of projects including scarves,
blankets and more!"
Irish Mesh Cowl - Like the Irish Mesh stitch? Check out the
Irish Mesh Cowl!"
