Introducing my Blarney the Leprechaun; he would make a super St Patrick’s Day gift. Blarney is 14 cm tall. Most pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight single-pointed knitting needles. The clover stalk and hat buckle are single crochet chains worked on a crochet hook, but if you do not know how to crochet you could embroider these details instead. The beard incorporates knitted bobbles, and instructions on how to knit a bobble are included in the pattern. You will also need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, knit stripes, and sew seams.
