Hey guys!

I’m working hard on finishing the pattern for Emma the Easter Bunny right now but I thought I should post something in honor of Saint Patrick’s Day as well.

Crochet these super cute Shamrocks and Four Leaf Clovers for Saint Patrick's Day using this simple, quick and free crochet pattern! You could use them to make a garland or a hair band or put them on a wreath, the possibilities are endless!

These are two super simple patterns for a Shamrock and a Four Leaf Clover. I prefer crocheting them using a magic ring/circle/loop just because I think it’s easier to close and gives a nicer finish. I highly recommend that you learn how to make a (double) magic ring, I will upload a written and video tutorial on this at some point. However, if you don’t feel comfortable using a magic ring, I have also provided the instructions for using an extra chain instead!

I made a bunch of these in different colors using both a magic ring and an extra chain. In the end you really can’t tell the difference, it’s just more work using the extra chain. I made all of the Shamrocks and Four Leaf Clovers into a garland simply by threading some yarn and pulling it under a loop on each leaf twice, and it turned out super cute!
