I had a really hard time finding a good crochet pattern for a pot of gold for St. Patrick’s Day. So, I came up with my own!
I started off by chaining 6 and adding a single crochet into each loop. After that, when I started my next row, I added 2 single crochet followed by 1 single crochet in each loop and then ended with 2 single crochet in the last loop.
Chain 1, turn my work, 2 single crochet followed by 1 single crochet in each loop ending with 2 single crochet in the last loop.
I simply repeated with chain 1, turn, 2 single crochet, 1 single crochet to the second to last loop, end with 2 single crochet in last loop, and chain 1 until I came to the height that looked suitable.
After ending with a slip stitch, I took my ends and weaved them into the sides of each row from top to bottom to soften and round the sides of the pot.
For the gold coins, I took a size 3mm hook, made a magic circle and made 10 single crochet into the loop. End with slip stitch into first single crochet. Pull tail of magic circle to bring round together. I then used the ends and stitched them into the top of the pot with a finishing needle.
