Shamrock Appliqué: Free Crochet Pattern
In 2018 I released a combined post/pattern for a shamrock and a four leaf clover, it didn’t make any sense to put them together so now I’ve split them. This way I was able to add instructions for making a three or four leaf shamrock or clover. You can find the Clover Appliqué pattern here. Enjoy! 😊
