A Wee Bit Irish

SONY DSC

Almost Leprechaun time so I just wanted to share again my Shamrock pattern (free) since St. Patrick’s Day will be coming up soon.  This is a really easy pattern and is perfect to adhere a pin back for a cute clothing accessory or attach a small piece of a self-adhesive magnetic strip and you have a fun magnet for your refrigerator, etc.

Turning it into a key chain charm with just a few extra chain stitches would be super so you could it hang from a backpack or zippered pouch.  Or just use it as a simple applique and sew it to a pillow, headband, cup cozy, napkin ring whatever you choose.

Have fun with this design and I would love to see your pictures too.  Remember that the pattern is my own original design and selling it is not acceptable.  However, I have no problem with you sharing or selling your finished product.  It would be fantastic if you could refer back to this website if you post pictures on-line.  Thanks so much 🙂

HAPPY CREATING!!

  

Crochet Shamrock – Free Pattern

I know there are a ton of crochet shamrock patterns out there in the great big web world but for some reason I just wasn’t finding that “perfect” clover I was picturing in my mind!! SONY DSC  So after spending an entire evening crocheting, ripping out, crocheting again, ripping out (you get the point), I finally came up with this particular design.  I really like the final results and I know it will be a super design for my particular needs.  Hopefully, you will enjoy making the pattern and find many, many uses for this cute little “Luck of the Irish”!!

 

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!!
