Crochet Shamrock

SONY DSC

My design used scraps of green cotton yarn (Lily Sugar ‘n Cream – dark pine) and a size G crochet hook.

Stitches used:  CH (chain), SC (single crochet), TR (triple crochet), HDC (half double crochet), SL (slip stitch).  Directions in US crochet terms.

I began using the “magic” loop technique crocheting 6 SC and joining with a SL in first SC.  Slip stitch (SL) in next stitch then crochet 3 CH, 1 TR, 1 HDC, 1 TR, 3 CH, 1 SL (all in that same stitch), SL in next stitch, SL in next stitch then crochet  3 CH, 1 TR, 1 HDC, 1 TR, 3 CH 1 SL,  SL in next stitch, SL in next stitch then crochet 3 CH, 1 TR, 1 HDC, 1 TR, 3 CH, 1 SL, SL in next stitch, CH 5, skip first chain and SL in remaining 4 chains to create stem.  Slip stitch back through the stitch you used to crochet 5 chains and fasten off.  You can just finger shape the leaves on your clover or you can steam them.

HAPPY CREATING!!
