12 Free Shamrock Crochet Patterns

Let our your inner leprechaun with these clover crochet designs!

Every small holiday of the year can be celebrated joyfully with crochet. St. Patrick's Day is a fun holiday to craft for, and you can avoid getting pinched by adding some green crochet shamrocks to your outfit. The shamrock is a lucky pattern and although we most often see it in March, it can also be used as a design motif throughout the year. The three-leaf clover in particular works as a leaf element in different designs.

    Free Shamrock Crochet Pattern
    Kathryn Vercillo

    This crochet applique pattern is a classic three-leaf shamrock. However, it also includes the instructions to make it a lucky four leaf clover if you want to craft that variation. Either way, this is a terrific design that is three-dimensional enough to pop off of any project it is sewn to. You could add it to a hat, shirt, or tote so that you don't get pinched on St. Patrick's Day. You could also string a set of them into bunting for a St. Patrick's party.
