If you'd like to make a Leprechaun hat yourself - the pattern can be found here on etsy and on ravelry here.
I've done my best to proofread and edit the pattern, but if you have any questions as you work it up please let me know.
Leprechaun Shoe Pattern
Hook Size: 8 / H 5.00mm
Finished size: Approximately 2 inches long, 1 1/4 inches tall and 1 inches wide.
Note: I recommend starting with the Magic Circle Technique,
if this technique is new to you then find a step by step "how to" here.
Round 1: Sc 6 in magic circle (6)
Round 2: Sc 1, Inc 1, Inc 1, Sc 1, Inc 1, Inc 1 (10)
Round 3: Slst 2, Sc 1, Inc 1, Inc 1, Slst3, Inc 1, Inc 1 (14)
Round 4: Slst 4, Inc 1, Inc 2, Inc 1, Sc1
From here, you will start working in the back loop only,
Sc 6 to end of round (18)
Round 5: Sc 12 in back loop only, Sc 6 in both loops around (18)
Round 6: Sc2, Dec1, Sc2, Inc1, Inc 1, Sc 2, Dec1, Sc 6, (18)
Round 7: Slst3, Sc2, Dec1, Dec1, Sc 2, Ch1, turn
Row 1: Sc1, Dec1, Dec1, Sc 1,
Thread yarn through the remaining loops and pull tight.
Weave in ends
***Switch to yellow yarn***
Row 1: Sc 2 in center of shoe "bill".
Fold yellow bill down towards the tip of the shoe like in Figure 2 above.
Take about 10 inches of black yarn and back stitch around the yellow until it looks like a buckle. Weave in ends and enjoy!
