This St. Patrick's Day Pot of Gold Crochet Pattern isn't somewhere over the rainbow - it's right here. Free easy crochet patterns are a great way to celebrate one of the best holidays of the year. The rainbow flowing into the pot of gold makes this a one-of-a-kind project. St. Patrick's Day crafts can come in so many different shapes and sizes, and this pattern is small but mighty. You can make it and display it on its own or you can add it to a crochet beanie. Rainbow crafts are a fun way to add a hint of color anytime, anywhere.
