Author

Debbie G.

Introduction

I made this about 10 years ago, and I’m trying to decipher my notes. I’m not the neatest writer!

Materials List

1 ball 50 gm green worsted weight yarn
Hook – Size 4.00 mm
Large-Eye Blunt Needle

Bow for center of shamrock

Finished Size

One Size, 23 cm /9 inches in tall [from end from stem to top] x 9 inches wide. Each “heart” shape is 10 cm /4 inches high. Stem is 13cm /5 inches.

Gauge

not important. I tend to crochet tight, so gauge may vary.

Notes

Make six, stitch 2 together; stuff and sew in sets of three to make a shamrock. Make a tail for the stem.
