Do you decorate your home for St Patrick’s Day? I usually don’t, but this year will be different. My oldest son is four year olds now, and he really enjoys all the holidays and festivities.
But being a frugal mom, I’m not rushing to the store to buy St Patrick’s Day decorations. Instead, we will make them ourselves. Cutting shamrock and clover leaves out of paper is easy and fun for kids, and doesn’t cost anything.
In my stash of yarns and threads, I found a bit of green cotton thread, just enough for a small doily. And here is what I produced – a perfect small doily for St Patrick’s Day!
The doily pattern is called Four Leaf Clover and was designed by Patrizia Pisani. Click here for the pattern.
I had a bit of trouble with those four overlapping circles and had to try a few times. Also, in the pattern it says that single crochets must be used to make those rings, but on the picture provided it looks like double crochets were used. I tried single crochets, but it didn’t look anything close to the picture. But when I used double crochets instead, it looked identical to the picture. Perhaps, it was a typo in the pattern.
