This adorable fair isle Shamrock hat knitting pattern makes the perfect St. Patrick’s day hat for your cute newborn, baby or toddler!
You guys, how cute is this shamrock hat?! I am so not on top of it this year though, I totally thought we still had weeks and weeks until St. Patrick’s Day. Spoiler alert: we do not.
To be completely honest, I knit up this cute shamrock hat, edited the photos and then kind of forgot about it. And then I had one of those middle of night, “oh no!” moments when I woke up from a dead sleep and remembered I needed to get this out to you!
So here you go! And I even learned something while designing the shamrock hat knitting pattern. Did you know that shamrocks and four leaf clovers are NOT the same thing? Or is that something everyone else in the world besides me already knows. Aa didn’t know either and didn’t even believe me at first. But it’s true!
Shamrocks have 3 leaves are associated with St. Patrick’s Day (with accompanying Christian holy trinity symbolism), four leaf clovers are just a good luck thing! Not necessarily St. Patrick’s Day related. Who knew?!
It’s your lucky day! (St. Patrick’s day pun!)
