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 …

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 (as an alternative to the magic ring, you can ch 4 and join with a slip stitch in furthest chain from hook to form a 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!
