St. Patrick’s Day is coming up soon, so (of course!) I had to make a themed hat! This Leprechaun Hat knitting pattern is beginner-friendly and it can be made in an evening.

The hat has a rolled brim and a contrasting stripe. The buckle is made by crocheting a chain and tacking it down to create a square.

Happy knitting!

    Thank you for the pattern. By the way, how many rows with the black yarn do we need to knit. The number of rows for knitting with the black yarn doesn't seem to be indicated in the pattern. Thank you again.

      Oh gosh- sorry about that! You knit 8 rows with the black yarn. I corrected the pattern. Thanks for pointing out the error =)
