Easy Crochet Clover

By:

Irish eyes will be smiling when they look upon this St. Patrick's Day crochet pattern from Many Creative Gifts.  Turn this crocheted clover into a hair accessory, pin, necklace or applique piece for an upcoming project you're working on.  This pattern works up quickly and is great for anyone who has some knowledge of basic crochet stiches.  If you find that you can't stop making these cute crocheted clovers (or shamrocks if you make three leaves), you can easily string them together into a banner to hang on your wall for St. Patrick's Day!

Materials:

  • 1 skein worsted weight yarn in Green
  • Size H/8/5.0 mm crochet hook

 

Gauge:  4 sts = 1 inch; 2 rows = 1 inch

 

Instructions:
Finished shamrock measures about 6 inches across and 5 inches tall

  1. Make 3 or 4 leaves. When starting one of the leaves, measure out about 40 or 50 yards (or 37 to 47 meters) of yarn as the “tail”, then make loop to start petal (or just attach yarn when ready to assemble leaves).
     
  2. Round 1:  (RS): Ch 7, 4 dcs into the top loop of the third ch from the hook, 1 hdc into next ch, 1 sc into next 3 chs, ch 1, turn leaf while keeping on RS and 1 sc into bottom of last sc made (see second picture below), 1 sc in next 2 chs, 1 hdc in next ch, 3 dcs into last ch, ch 2, sl st to first ch at beginning, fasten off.  To sl st to finish off, remove hook, turn leaf over to WS, put hook into first ch of round and pull through loop, cut yarn and pull through to finish off on WS of leaf.


     
  3. At the bottom of each leaf should basically be 3 sts to work into. Take the leaf with the long tail and, on the RS, pull through a loop into the first of those 3 sts.
     
  4. Ch 1, 1 sc into next 2 sts, then 1 sc into first st of next leaf, 1 sc in next 2 sts of that next leaf, then 1 sc into first st of third leaf and 1 sc into next 2 sts, repeat one more time for a fourth leaf if applicable. Ch 2, remove hook and put hook through first sc of first leaf and pull through loop.

 

Stem and Trim

  1. Row 1:  (RS) Ch 1, 1 sc in same st and next 2 sts (3 sts), turn
     
  2. Rows 2-5:  Repeat Row 1
     
  3. Row 6:  Ch 1, 1 sc in same st and next st, 2 scs in last st (4 sts), turn
     
  4. Row 7:  (RS) Ch 1, 2 scs in same st, 1 sc in next 3 sts (5 sts).
     
  5. Ch 1, sl st along side of stem, then 1 sc in next 4 sts of first leaf, 2 scs in next 3 or 4 sts (depending on where “dimple” in the top of the leaf is), sl st into dimple, 1 sc in next st, 2 scs in next 3 sts, 1 sc in next 4 sts, then 1 sc into first st of next leaf and repeat until all leaves trimmed. Sl st down the other side of stem, sl st to first st, fasten off.
