With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, if you haven’t started your festive patterns now is a great time to start! From funny gag projects to elegant Celtic inspired ones, we have got you covered for your next St. Patrick’s Day project!

Let us know what patterns you’re looking forward to try and if you have any other free patterns to add to the list!

Knit Patterns



By: Tiina Väätäinen

While this is technically a Finnish pattern, the cabling and pattern made me think of Ireland. Technically Vikings had a huge influence on Irish culture so I think this can technically still fit into the Irish category. Not to mention, you can’t have an Irish list without at least one cabled sweater!

Booties Go Bragh

By: Vickie Howell

Make sure your little one celebrates in style with these festive booties! I just love the Shamrock details and think this would make a perfect gift! The sizing says it should fit size 0-6 months.

Kid’s Leprechaun Hat

By: Gina Michele

This adorable little cap is perfect for any little leprechaun! Sizing is not super clear, so you’ll have to calculate based on head size and your gauge on whether you should make s/m or a m/l . You can also adjust needle size and/or yarn size to accomplish this, however it will take a decent amount of math.


Lucky Beanie

By: CraftsEverywhere

This hat is absolutely adorable! Unfortunately, it only comes in adult and teen sizes for the free version. If you want to check out this wonderful designer’s Etsy or Ravelry listing, she has the paid pattern linked for a full range of sizes from Newborn to adult. This would make a perfect quick project to wear to your local parade, especially since it uses super bulky weight yarn!

Celtic Headband

By: Juliana Lustenader

I firmly believe cables and colorwork are the foundations of knitting. Whether they were the first to use the technique or not, cabling has almost become synonymous with irish knitting thanks mainly in part to the Aran sweater.

When I saw this gorgeous Celtic-knotwork-style headband, I knew I HAD to add it to my list because of the beautiful cabled knotwork.

Celtic Fair Isle Beret in Patons Classic Wool Worsted

By: Patons

Fair Isle, the most iconic colorwork style of them all! While technically Scottish, fair isle is now commonly used to refer to any stranded color work. The knotwork colorwork paired with the green colored yarn on this slouchy hat, made me think of Ireland.

Braided Celtic Knot Scarf

By: Kristen McDonnell

Maybe it’s the emerald green color, or the interesting design. Either way, I thought this design would be a perfect accessory for St. Patrick’s Day. It uses bulky weight yarn and would be a quick project to get started on!

Celtic Cables Wrap in Caron Simply Soft Heathers 

By: Caron

This shawl is beautiful that would make a gorgeous piece no matter the time of year.


By: Asita Krebs

We’re not through the cold yet, and these leg warmers look like the perfect idea to brave the chill and enjoy some Patty’s Day parades! As someone with siblings who play in a pipe band, legwarmers are a great idea to wear to the parade, and super stylish too!

Fancy Celtic Cable

By: Kristen McDonnell

This cable pattern is just instructions for how to do the cable. You can add this to any project to bring some Celtic spice to it. Just remember that cables don’t offer much stretch to them! I think it would make a gorgeous scarf or detail on a tote bag!


Mug Cozy – Celtic Saxon Braid Cable

By: Kristen McDonnell

This mug cozy is a cute quick project to whip up for saint Patrick’s day.

Celtic Knot Potholder

By: Lisa Hannan Fox

Potholders or coasters are never not useful, and this one uses an interesting double sided reverse colorwork technique. If you wanted a small project to try this technique out and get a cute functional project as well, this is perfect!

Coaster Clover

By: Sonja Neukomm

Similar to the last project this one also uses a double sided reverse color work. The benefit of this one though is that the coaster is a little smaller than the potholder.


By: Samuele Scomparin

This little shamrock makes a perfect little accessory! It can easily be made into a pin or just a little applique to add some St. Patrick sprinkles to any project.


Snake Knitting Pattern

By: Libby Swindells

Anyone who knows the story of St. Patrick, knows how snakes are a funny little project for the holiday!


By: Amanda Berry

Another funny and fun project for the Irish holiday.

Thirteen the Lucky Dragon

By: sharon maher

This year is the Chinese year of the dragon and this lucky dragon makes a perfect little project!

Lucky Gnome

By: Billy and Baa

I love this style of gnome, and this festive one would make a perfect decoration for the season.

Paddy – the Cork Leprechaun

By: MagdaLaine

This cute little leprechaun would make an adorable little toy or decoration.

St. Patrick’s Crochet Shamrock Pillow Cover

By: Briana K. Designs

I absolutely love this pillow design! This is a great subtle way to incorporate St. Patricks Day into your household decor. Since it is just the addition of a clover it is even suitable to be left out for weeks if you want. I think if I ever make this I would attempt to change the three leaf clover to a four leaf one for some good luck perhaps!


By: MJ’s Off the Hook Designs

Ok, I love the way this pillow looks and am amazed that it was accomplished with crochet! It is absolutely beautiful and honestly goes beyond just St. Patricks Day. This pillow design is so versatile I believe it would suit anybody’s style home!

By: EyeLoveKnots

This is a great way to spruce up your house for St. Patrick’s Day and as the name entails, can even be used through the summer! The simple coloring is what makes it so adaptable to the seasons. Perhaps make the flowers removable and you have yourself a wreath base you can use all year round which you can crochet different season florals to add to!

But this is a beautiful blanket that is made up of different patterned squares that are then pieced together! This means its a great travel project!


By: Yarnspirations

Another cable blanket that is Celtic inspired! I love the cable look in all things, but I have to say I do not like to crochet it myself. Perhaps I need more practice to get used to it! I think this blanket would look fabulous in anybody’s home so get to it!


By: Yarnspirations

Love this two tone look! The green and white colors make it perfect for the St. Patrick’s Day season!
