St. Patrick’s Day and making sure everyone has on a bit of green are just around the corner. Like many years, my kids will be off on spring break for St. Patrick’s Day. So the person they really have to worry about pinching them is me. Don’t worry I will supply each of them with a small crochet clover to wear for the day.
One of our St. Patrick’s Day traditions is a #luckyyarnbomb where we leave clovers/shamrocks around town with Lucky You/Wishing You Luck notes attached to them. This year though, is the everything bigger and better year. So instead of making small shamrock pins I’m making a large four-leaf clover.
My clover is made from 4 green crochet hearts (you could also make 3 hearts for a 3-leaf clover) and a stem. Once all the pieces are made they get stitched together to form the clover.
The hearts are crocheted flat using double crochet and single crochet stitches. (These are different than the small crochet heart pattern I shared in February! I know not everyone likes using the magic loop to start a crochet project, so this is a new way to make a crochet heart.) I wanted a lucky four-leaf clover so I made four green hearts for my project.
And here is my four-leaf clover all assembled, including the stem.
If you use a cotton or wool yarn the crochet clover actually makes a great hot pad/doily/decoration for the table. I’m making a couple. At least one to decorate with and one for my yarn bomb.
