St. Patrick's Day Crocheted Octopus
|Plush Baby Octopus in Crochet|
This little plush octopus is handmade in crochet in a combination of Irish green and the gold of the 'pot of gold' at the end of the rainbow we sometimes associate with Irish mythology.
This St. Patrick's Day crocheted octopus measures about 2 inches tall and 6 inches across his tentacles. This one is available in my Etsy Shop of Coastal Crochet Crafts. If you crochet and would like to create your own Irish octopus in crochet, I created a free pattern tutorial for you.
What is a Shamrock?
The Shamrock is known as a symbol of Ireland. According to legend, St. Patrick used it as a metaphor for the Christian Trinity.
Shamrock Beverage Coasters
|Shamrock Tabletop Coasters|
Shamrock designs are popular in any form. These cute beverage coasters handmade in needlepoint on plastic canvas are just the thing to protect your tabletops at your St. Patrick's Day celebrations, which might include 'green' beer or Irish coffee!
These Shamrock Beverage Coasters were created by Pat and are available in her Etsy Shop Coastal Crochet Crafts. Irish drink coasters measure 4 x 4 inches with a design of that Irish clover and stitched in two shades of green with the design outlined in black.
