Need a shamrock to show your Irish pride or to keep from getting pinched on St. Patrick's Day?
Leaves: With green, ch 3, join to form ring.
Rnd 1: Ch 1, 6 sc in ring, join with sl st.
Rnd2: Ch 1 (sc, hdc, 6dc, sc) in first sc (Leaf made), sl st in next sc, (work leaf in next sc, st st in next sc,) twice.
Stem: Ch 6, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and in next 5 ch; sl st into last round to join. Finish off.
Push hook through stitch just to the right of stem from front to back and pull up white yard.
White Piping: Working between the stitches, make slip st in each stitch around with last sl st just to left of stem (see photo.)
Finishing: Cut yarn and finish off by pulling end through loop on hook. Pull end to back of shamrock. Turn shamrock over and tie ends together in a secure double knot (white to white, and green to green.) Clip ends off close to knots. Use the straight pin to attach to your lapel.
Thank you so very much for these instructions! I am Irish, and I crochet, so this is perfect for me. God bless!
A quick little crochet project so you can be "Wearin' the Green."
Approximate Time: Mere minutes
