Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Back Stitch
  • French Knots
  • Satin Stitch

Pattern Description:

Raise a Glass!: St Patrick's Day in Chicago means you crack open your first beer while you are waiting to watch the Chicago River dyed green at 10 am. Hot Tip: Guinness in coffee is surprisingly good! And yeah, it's all downhill from there. Irish Americans, and those of us who are only Irish one day a year, celebrate St Patrick's Day by raising a glass (or twenty) and wearing green. Would the patron saint of Ireland who drove the snakes away approve? Let's worry about that on March 18th! Until then, raise your stein and give a loud "Dia shbhil Ireland"!
