Rainbow Pot Of Gold
I thought that since today is St Patrick’s Day it would be nice for the little ones to find a Pot of Gold waiting for them when they wake up. After all, isn’t that why we all love a rainbow? The promise that we might find some hidden treasure among the beautiful shimmering colours.
So without further ado, here’s a free crochet pattern for you to make your own pot of gold.
You will need:
brown or black yarn for pot
small amount of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple and pink for rainbow handle
hook appropriate for your yarn choice
pins for sewing
gold coins (or chocolate pennies)
I used a double knit / light worsted weight cotton and a 2.5mm hook for my pot. It turned out about 13 cm / 5″ high from base to top of handle. Using a hook size 1-2 sizes smaller than advised on your yarn label will ensure your pot is nice and sturdy.
This pattern is written in US terminology. You’ll need to know the single crochet stitch, crab stitch (reverse single crochet) and slip stitch. The US single crochet is the equivalent of the UK double crochet
