St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner and I thought I would try and figure out how to make a crochet shamrock. I slightly modified a flower pattern and after several tries, I finally got it.
Aren’t they just cute! These are really easy to make. You can make one in just a couple of minutes.
These shamrocks are a great size for using them in several projects you may have in mind.
They would make great pins if you don’t have anything else to wear that is green on St. Patrick’s Day.
I recently used this pattern to make a Shamrock Coffee Cup Cozy!
After making one shamrock, my son asked me to make a garland like I did for Valentine’s Day. So I made several of these shamrocks and strung them on some yarn to hang on our mantle. I just threaded the yarn around the double crochet in the top of the shamrock. See photo below for threading your shamrocks.
What you will need:
- Worsted Weight Yarn – I used Red Heart Paddy Green
- H Crochet Hook
- Yarn Needle
If you are more of a visual learner, I have made a video for you to watch.
How To Crochet a Shamrock:
Chain 4, Slip Stitch into your first chain.
*Chain 4. Triple Crochet; Double Crochet; Triple Crochet all into the center of the circle. Chain 4, Slip Stitch into the center.* This makes one petal. Repeat from * to * for a total of 3 petals.
Chain 7. Half Double Crochet into the 3rd chain from your hook. Slip Stitch into the remaining chains. Add a final slip stitch into the center of the shamrock.
Cut your yarn and weave in your end.
As you can see they really are very simple to make.
