St. Patrick’s Day Wreath Crochet Pattern With a Pot of Gold

St. Patrick's Day Pot of Gold Wreath Crochet Pattern

The idea for this St. Patrick’s Day wreath crochet pattern was actually sparked back in October when a very creative reader suggested that my Halloween cauldron pattern would also make a great pot of gold for Saint Patrick’s Day. Yes! So that is exactly what I did … and of course where there is a pot of gold, there is a rainbow …

St. Patrick’s Day Wreath Crochet Pattern

Here’s what you need:

  • 12 in. Styrofoam wreath
  • 7 rainbow colors worsted weight yarn (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet)
  • black worsted weight yarn
  • sparkly sport weight yarn, such as Lion Brand Gold Bonbons as I used here
  • G and C hook
  • tapestry needle
  • hot glue gun

Row 1: 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across, turn — 20 sts.

Row 2: Ch 1 (does not count as st here and throughout), 1 sc in each st across, drop CA turn — 20 sts.

Row 3: Join CB, ch 1, 1 sc in each st across, turn — 20 sts.

Repeat color sequence 8 more times for a total of 63 rows.

Fasten off, weave in ends. Attach crochet cover to wreath in the same way as we did for the American Flag Wreath Crochet Pattern.

 

Pot of Gold Crochet Pattern

To make the pot for the gold, follow the same pattern as used for the Halloween cauldron pattern here.

 

Gold Coins Pattern

Using a C hook and the sparkly sport weight yarn, make a magic ring.

Round 1: Ch 1 (does not count as st here and throughout), work 6 sc in ring, join — 6 sts.

Round 2: Ch 1, work 2 sc in same st as join and in each st around, join — 12 sts.

Fasten off, weave in ends.

 

Assembling

Use a piece of crumpled tissue paper to fill in the bottom part of the pot. Then cover the top with coins. Use a dab of hot glue to keep the coins in place. Sew or glue the pot to the center of your wreath. If desired glue a few coins around the bottom of the pot as well. You can even add a shamrock or two if you want. You can find a free shamrock pattern here.

Enjoy!
