Don’t forget to wear your green! Stitch up this shamrock garland and give yourself a lucky crochet clover that you can wear
Ever since I learned to crochet I always make a pile of crochet clovers for St. Patrick’s Day. Everyone in my family gets one to prevent pinches and I hand them out to anyone else caught outside without some green. More recently one of my yarn bomb traditions is a #luckyyarnbomb for St. Patrick’s Day. So with St. Patrick’s Day coming up I’ve started my shamrock crocheting.
I loved the idea of a Shamrock Garland, but I also wanted to be able to remove the shamrocks and give them away to friends and family. To make that easy the shamrocks are each safety pinned to the garland. Of course I think I’ll also make a garland where the shamrocks are attached. You can never have too many lucky clovers around!
The clovers that are part of my annual St. Patrick’s Day yarn bomb each have a #luckyyarnbomb tag on it!
