Free Pattern for Crocheted Leprechaun Shoe

Last year on St. Patrick's Day, a creative mom used Lostsentiments Green St. Patrick's Day Hat to give her kids the impression that a leprechaun had left it behind! :) Since the hat was such a hit, this year she requested I make a leprechaun shoe! :) So I whipped up this pattern and decided to share it here with you!

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. 

Thank you! 

Leprechaun Shoe Pattern

Yarn: Worsted Weight
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".
Row 2: Ch 1 turn, Sc 2, weave in ends. 

Shoe should looke like Figure 1 below.

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!
