Crochet Shamrock Earflap Hat

ShamrockHat3

No need to worry about getting pinched this St. Patrick’s Day when wearing this festive Crochet Shamrock Earflap Hat! Simply constructed and fun for all ages! Start with a basic striped beanie pattern and then sew on a crochet shamrock onto either side of the hat. A chained tail (or braided tails) looks like the stem! The shamrock pattern is super easy as it’s made up of 3 crochet hearts. Add a fourth heart to make is a lucky 4 leaf clover! Let me walk you through the pattern and construction.

Materials:
– Bernat Super Value Yarn in Fern Green and White. Shop all shades of worsted weight green yarn on Yarnspirations.com!
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Tapestry Needle

Abbreviations:
Magic Ring Tutorial
SC= Single Crochet
DC = Double Crochet
Ch = Chain

Basic Striped Hat Pattern:
Start with green yarn and alternate between white and green between each row. You don’t need to fasten off yarn at the end of each row, just carry up from previous row. You will only be able to see where the yarn carries up on the inside of the hat.

Note: you can make either one or two rounds of SC stitches at the end of the hat. I chose to only make one round of SC stitches in the hat pictured.

Crochet Shamrock:

You will want to make 6 of my EASY CROCHET HEARTS <<<< Pattern found HERE.
They will stitch together to make two separate shamrocks.
ShamrockHat6
I used the mattress stitch to sew the back loops of the heart edges together but you could also follow my CROCHET SHAMROCK TUTORIAL and stitch them together like that. You will NOT want to make the “stem” yet!

ShamrockHat7
Line up the shamrock (there should still be no stem) so the middle join is even with the bottom edge of hat.

 

ShamrockHat9

Insert hook in the middle join of shamrock and the bottom edge stitch of hat. Pull new strand of green yarn through and join with a slip stitch. Chain 41 (or more or less depending on how long you want your tail to be), slip stitch in second chain from hook and the rest of the way down chain until you get back to the middle join on your shamrock. Slip stitch to join again and fasten off leaving long tail (we are going to use the long tail in our next step).

ShamrockHat10

ShamrockHat12

Using tapestry needle and long tail, stitch on edges of shamrock to hat. Work your needle under the tops of the SC stitches.

ShamrockHat13

Add tassels or pom poms or fringe to the bottom of your chain tail. Another option is to just add braided tails to act as stems.
Add your second shamrock earflap to the other side of the hat. A good way to estimate placement is to try and leave a bit more space on the front of the hat between earflaps than in the back.

    So precious! I’d like to make one for everyone in the family! Thank you so much for sharing the pattern and your creativity with us!

    Yo7ru821#;&e shocked? Shows how out of it your thinking and your advice is. BTW, most minimum wage burger joint jobs are around $6 or $7 an hour not, $9 as in California. Anyway, this has been going on in the heart of the country for years, so get out of silicon valley once in a while and get your facts straight.
