Notes:
1. Read instructions all the way through before beginning.
2. I tried to find size 3 crochet thread in a good green, but it must not be the right season for "Christmas" green. So I settled for RH sports weight in Paddy Green. If you can find it, the cotton works up much nicer.

Instructions:

Shamrock:

Chain 4, join with a slipstitch in first chain to form a ring.

Work over the yarn tail as you work into the ring. *Ch 3, tr, dc, tr, ch 3, slip stitch in ring. Repeat from * twice. (3 leaves)

Bookmark Tail:

Ch 40 (S), 55 (M), 70 (L), sc in the 10th ch from hook to form ring. *Ch 4, skip 4 chs, sc in next ch. Repeat from * until 5 chains remain, sc in last chain.

Fasten off.

Weave in ends.

Tassel:

Cut 6 strands of thread about 6 inches long. Fold in half and draw loop through the ring at end of tail with a crochet hook. Draw the loose ends of the strands through the loop and pull them down tightly to form a knot. Trim ends of tassel evenly.

Optional Blocking:

If you used cotton thread or yarn, you probably want to block. Mix 1 part vinegar with 5 parts water. Wet the bookmark with the vinegar solution. Squeeze out excess and lay on a towel. Shape the shamrock and tail, allow to dry.
