This Irish counted cross stitch pattern entitled You May Take the Shamrock from My Hat shows a young Irish lass wearing a hat of green to symbolize the wearing of the green in Irish culture. The title of this pattern comes from an antiwar song meaning that if blood is shed, Irish people in an act of rebellion were willing to wear the green and lay down their lives for the love of their country. With the act of taking the shamrock from your hat and casting it on the ground, although the shamrock will be trodden on, it will take root and Ireland will survive. Only full cross stitches are used in our patterns. No blended colors are used. We only use an abundance of solid colors as it produces a more realistic effect.
