There is no better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than with Lucky the Leprechaun, a fun crochet project! Lucky the Leprechaun is a great way to bring a bit of Irish charm to your home. It is a fun and easy project that can be completed somewhat quickly, and Lucky is sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face.
Despite the fact that leprechauns are known for being tricksters, loners, and not the most trusting of creatures, Lucky, the Leprechaun, probably won’t mind that you keep him company. Lucky the Leprechaun is actually quite friendly. He’s always looking for someone to chat with, and he loves to share stories about his adventures. He may even give you a few tips on how to be a better trickster! If you are kind to him, he may even give you a little of his wealth as a gift, or mend your shoes as an act of kindness. According to him, dandelion tea is one of the things he enjoys drinking the most. Is there a chance you could brighten his mood if you made him a cup of tea?
When completed, Lucky measures just 3 inches tall!
