Note: you can use any yarn you like, just check the yarn label for the hook recommendation.
For the shamrocks as shown:
- H (5.0 mm) hook
- Green yarn (darker green is Lion Brand Vanna's Choice in "Kelly Green" and the lighter one is Red Heart Super Saver in "Spring Green"
- Tapestry needle
- Shamrocks shown are 1.5 inches wide and 2 inches tall from top to bottom of stem.
Note: Experiment with different hooks and/or yarn for a variety of different sizes.
- ch: Chain
- sl st: Slip Stitch
- dc: Double Crochet
Chain 4 and join with a slip stitch to form a ring.
Round 1 (all stitches worked into the center of the ring): work (4 dc, sl st) into the center of the ring.
Repeat two more times for a total of three "leaves"
Chain 4, then in the second ch from the hook work one sc. Work a sc in each of the next two chains, then work a sl st into the center of the ring to finish off the stem.
Join to close shamrock with a sl st and fasten off.
Weave in the ends and you're all finished! Because they are so small, you may need to shape them with your hands a bit.
