Leprechaun Headband

I was going through the kids dress up box and I came across the little Leprechaun Hat I Made last year for my mini maker to wear to school for St.Patrick’s Day. Originally I wasn’t planning to write up a pattern for St.Patrick’s day but of course little brother wanted a Leprechaun headband too! So this time around I wrote out a pattern to share with you. This is a quick project, I worked it up in about an hour using small amounts of worsted weight yarn. It’s super cute for kids to play with or grown ups to wear while drinking annual green beer! Either way, I hope you enjoy!
