This ribbed scarf is an easy pattern and a quick way to use up some of your yarn stash -- whether you knit it in green and white or some other colors. You can make this a scarf for any time of year by knitting it in team colors or using a wider variety of colors in the stripes.

2. Irish Rose

This knit and felted Irish rose is a perfect choice for people who want to wear a little green on St. Patrick's Day but not go completely overboard. And it's just a knit strip, so it's a perfect project for a new knitter (and a new felter).

3. Shamrock Basket Liner

This simple basket liner has a shamrock on it to liven up your St. Patrick's Day table. Or you could knit a bunch and use them as placemats.

This easy-to-knit holiday necklace/skinny scarf is simply an I-cord with pom-poms attached to the end. It's a great knit for kids who love to play dress up any time of the year.

Keep your coffee or tea warm and in the Irish spirit with this easy to knit wool coffee mug cozy. Whether your coffee is Irish or regular, it's sure to stay warm longer when you keep it tucked inside this colorful cozy.

6. Trinity Stitch Headband

Trinity Stitch sounds made for St. Patrick's Day, since legend has it that St. Patrick used the shamrock (that's the three-petaled one) to explain the trinity to the Irish. This headband is a quick and easy knit for any time of year.
