The Knit of the Irish – Knitting Patterns from Designers in Ireland for St. Patrick’s Day

With a month to go before Saint Patrick’s feast day, we better get knitting, folks! About 180 years ago, my ancestors left Ireland in pursuit of the American dream. I wonder what they’d say to me now that I’ve moved back? It has been nearly 12 years since I started my new life in Ireland.

I am sharing two lists in this post, one is a list of Patterns from Designers in Ireland and the other is a list of Patterns from Beyond Ireland [but related to Ireland or Irish themes]. This post focuses on my fellow designers. I am not listing of my own patterns, but you can learn about them in this post.

And, sadly, I do not have a knitting pattern for this scene, but I couldn’t resist sharing this window I saw in Dingle.

If you want to know more about what life in Ireland is like for this American, you can read my other blog, Slainté Cork: 40 Shades of Life. Actually, I wrote a post about St. Patrick’s Day here in Cork City you may enjoy reading.

    Hi, Evin! What a lovely collection of patterns, and that’s a cute tea cozy you designed! I love the scene at the end, and so did my two-year-old (but he kept saying the animals were elephants, lol). Looks like you plan to be busy for the next month! 🙂
