St. Patrick’s Day Knitting Patterns

by | Feb 15, 2015 | Holiday, St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day Knitting Patterns including shamrocks, leprechauns, celtic cross motifs on hats, wash cloths, shawls and more. Most patterns are free

As you celebrate the Irish on March 17, please give a thought to the real Patrick who was a model of forgiving love. Patrick was an English teenager kidnapped by Irish raiders who grew close to God in his exile. After God guided Patrick to a successful escape, Patrick had a dream of the Irish calling him to return and teach them about God. So he left his family again to make Ireland his home.

Terry Matz

meTerry is a knitting late-bloomer, learning to knit as an adult from Internet tutorials, because she wanted a craft that was useful, fun, and portable. Knitting hats for cancer patients inspired her to design her own patterns—available for free at her blog, intheloopknitting.com. Terry met her husband Ken at a science fiction convention and moved to the Kansas City area to be with him more than 30 years ago. Terry supports her yarn stash by creating websites and other digital media. Terry firmly believes in Knitting in Public—it's a great conversation starter!
