Title: Quick and easy shamrock pin
Post by: Oddly on March 16, 2011 11:34:47 AM
I made a shamrock pin for St. Patrick's day!  :)



I used Red Heart green yarn, U.S. size 8 knitting needles, a pin, glue, and a tapestry needle.



1.  Knit two 3 stitch i-cords.  One 6 inches long, the other 8 inches long.
2 & 3. Coil the 8 inch i-cord at both ends and sew in place using a tapestry needle.
4. Coil the 6 inch i-cord at one end leaving a "stem" at the other end.



5.  Sew the pieces together.
6. Thread your needle through the center of each coil to the outer edge and back to the center, pull the yarn tight to create the indentation in each leaf then tie off the yarn.
7. Glue a pin to the back (The side all your little knots are on from tying off)
8. Wear and enjoy!

Thanks for looking!  :)

Wish I'd seen this post BEFORE St. Patrick's Day.
I was totally wiped out over what the date of the day was - and refused to believe that it was really the 17th.
As a result, I wore nothing green on the day. But I could have 'snuck' by with this pin.

What a clever idea to make a pin with i-cord!
Well done; congratulations; and thank you for providing us with the pattern!

So cute!  I better make one NOW so I'll have it for next year!!  The i-cord is a great invention for so many things.
