Crochet Shamrocks Pattern

Tell me I’m not the only one who can’t believe that St. Patrick’s Day is upon us… The never-ending winter season here in Michigan has me in complete denial about the date on the calendar; a look out the window tells me that it’s GOTTA be like, December… right? If any of you Think Crafts readers follow my blog or instagram, you probably know about my affinity for crochet hearts… I’ve done big ol’ heart pillowsheart garlandsmini amigurumi hearts, and the list goes on… This shamrock pattern? It’s made outta hearts. What can I say, I’m a one trick pony. 😉

Hearts

For these babies, you will make 3 hearts (from this pattern). They’re super simple, completed in one round:

Abbreviations: ch = chain, tr = treble crochet, dc = double crochet, sc = single crochet

Make a magic ring and ch 3. In the circle, do 2tr, 3dc, ch, tr, ch, 3dc, 2tr, ch3. Then slip stitch back into the ring, fasten off, and pull the loop closed. Sew the center yarn through the backs of the stitches to keep the center tight. (check the pattern link for process photos!)

For the stem, simply ch 6, sc into second ch from hook and in next 4 chs, and fasten off. Weave in the shorter yarn end and trim.

Using a yarn needle and the yarn ends on your pieces, sew the hearts together along their edges as shown. Sew through the backs of the stitches to preserve the entire heart shape for each shamrock “leaf.” Sew on your stem, being sure to sew the points of the bottom hearts together as well.

Once your shamrocks are finished, you could back them with felt like these coasters for a more finished look. Then you could add a pin to use these as brooches, or maybe magnets? What would you do with them?

    Super Cute! My Grandma’s birthday is on St Patty’s day and I am going to make her a little tissue box cover and I’ll put these cute shamrocks – one on each side! The hearts won me over, and I think she will LOVE it too 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing this (I have about a year of crochet experience and am grateful for people like you who have helped teach me along the way) XOXO Thanks Again!

    Thanks for this pattern, I’m making some for Girl Guides as the shamrock resembles our trefoil.
