You will find that I love every holiday, every occasion, everything we celebrate. St. Patrick’s Day is coming up I couldn’t resist making a pattern for a crochet Shamrock and four leaf clover.
First a little history. Did you know that St. Patrick used the three leaf clover (Shamrock) to convert the Irish to Christians? The Shamrock represents The Holy Trinity, The Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The four leaf clover, is for good luck.
Recently we found out my husband is Scottish and Irish and we couldn’t be more proud.
On with the pattern!
Materials: Yarn – 1 skein Caron Simply Soft. I used this yarn I had on hand in a nice dark green, I’m not too sure of the exact green.
