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.
