St. Patrick's Hair Clips: Crocheted Spring Flowers

I mentioned a month or so ago that I recently learned to crochet (and a bit). I made some cute hearts for Valentine's day

Well, wanting to keep my skills up a bit and not forget everything I learned, and realizing that my girls don't have a ton of green clothes, I decided to whip up some cute green hair clips that they could wear for St. Patrick's Day.


I searched around a bit and found a pattern I was going to try (a real basic one because my crochet skills are REAL basic). I liked the easy pattern by By Helen.

Of course, then I remembered that dear Emily had made my girls some ages ago and posted that pattern ages ago. So, here's Emily's pattern which is also great and similar. I love the sweet, homey feel of these crochet flower hair clips. They're just sweet. :)

I liked the layered effect with these. For the bottom flower I used regular, worsted-weight yarn and size H crochet hook, then for the smaller flower on top I used baby-weight yarn and a size E crochet hook. 

And I realize that you can't REALLY see the hair clips well in this next picture, but look how cute my daughter's dimples are! I can't get over it. I love them. I remember right after she was born how my husband said, "It's a girl...and she has dimples." 




Happy St. Patrick's Day to you! I hope you don't get pinched. :)
