St Patrick’s Day Crochet Pattern – Slainte / Bollocks

Looking for the perfect St Patrick’s Day crochet pattern? Stitch this up just in time for the holiday! 

St Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and what better way is there to celebrate than to snag this crochet pattern and emblazon the word Bollocks on a pillow, then adorn your couch with it?

I mean I certainly can’t think of anything better…

I had a ton of fun with this St. Patrick’s Day inspired crochet pattern design 🙂

If you aren’t familiar, the word Slainte is gaelic and literally translates to “Health.” It’s often used the same way one might say “Cheers” while toasting with friends. The longer form of the well wish is “Slainte Mhaith,” which means “Good Health.”

So you can use this pillow to wish your guests well, or flip it around if you’re feeling a bit more cheeky ;P

To give a nod to the beautiful thing that is Irish lace, I opted for a clones knot (if you don’t know what that is, you can learn how to stitch one right here on my YouTube channel) to add a decorative border.

Comment below and let me know what you think about the added detail!

This is a premium crochet pattern and can be purchased at the link below 🙂 But you can keep scrolling for a bit more info before you make it yours!

You’ll see this called Intarsia in the video, but I have since learned that, after all this time of doing this thing, this method is actually called Fair Isle. 

Intarsia is specifically where you would use a separate bobbin for each and every section where the color changes (using the video’s example, the H, I, ! and Background would all have a separate bobbin in Intarsia. Where Fair Isle, the colors are carried across the wrong side of the work.
