Cro-Shayley makes a Baby St. Patrick’s Day Chapeau

St. Patrick's Day ChapeauTop ‘o the mornin’ to ya!
St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and my little boy wants to be prepared! As I was reading through Donna’s Dozen: Lucky You creative ideas for St. Patrick’s Day blog, I came across the St. Patrick’s Day Chapeau pattern and questioned how could I make this for a 4 month old baby. I skimmed through the pattern and realized it uses 2 strands of Super Saver yarn for the hat. I was feeling LUCKY ;) so I tried the pattern with only 1 strand of Super Saver yarn and wadduya know…it fits my little leprechaun!

I followed the steps in the pattern for the “Small Size” crocheting the hat and brim first using a H8/5mm crochet hook instead.

My mom was a kindergarten and first grade teacher when I grew up and she had a song for pretty much every occasion. The St. Patrick’s Day song she would sing was and still is my absolute favorite. I just wish I could find the song online to share but after searching for so long I just gave up. All I could find in my search were the lyrics. Here you go:

Little Leprechaun, little leprechaun, little leprechaun, hello.
Little Leprechaun, little leprechaun, you’re a leprechaun, I know.
You’re a cute little elf, if I say so myself,
When you pop up in green every March 17.
Little Leprechaun, little leprechaun, little leprechaun, hello.
Though you’ll disappear for another year, you’ll be back again, I know.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!

    Love it. My daughter has asked that I make one for my 18month old grandson. I’m going to try it. Maybe go up a size on hook. Thanks for posting. Adorable….baby too!
