Is anyone else oddly excited for Saint Patrick's Day this year? I have this big love for holiday's and the last few years, I haven't been giving Saint Patty's Day the love it deserves so I thought that this year, I would do a couple easy projects to be fun and festive.
Plus how adorable are these little crochet four leaf clovers? The entire time I was creating them, I kept telling my husband over and over, "Oh my gosh look how cute these are turning out?" and while he maybe wasn't as excited as I was, he still agreed that they are pretty cute ha ha.
So if you're wanting a quick and easy crochet project to get ready for this Saint Patty's Day, look no further. These sweet little clovers work up real fast and can easily be connected to make a garland, you could pin one to your shirt if you don't have anything green to wear, or they are even fun to just scatter festively on the table.

It might look/sound a little complicated, but it's so easy I promise. Here's a step by step explanation with photos for all the visual learners like myself.
Chain 7 to begin and then slip stitch into the first chain.
Then you chain 6 and slip stitch into the center (the original first chain) for each leaf.
Then for the stem, chain 6 and single crochet into the second chain from hook and across for five single crochets total. Slip stitch into the center.
For the leaves, it will look a bit like a jumbled mess at first but just trust me, we'll fix it at the end. Inside of each chain 6, you will single crochet two times, half double crochet, double crochet, half double crochet two times, double crochet, half double crochet, and then single crochet two times and slip stitch into center.
Shape the leaves a bit by flattening and pinching in the sides.
Weave in the ends and taa daa! You've got yourself the cutest little four leaf clover you ever did see.
How adorable are these? I can't wait to string them together and make a little garland to hang on the wall.
Feel free to use this pattern to create clovers for yourself, friends, and even in your crafty businesses. As always, I just ask to be given a little credit for the use of my patterns :)
Thank you all so much for your continued support! I hope you're having a fabulous day and that Saint Patrick's Day is extra awesome this year!
