Hi everyone! It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted a new pattern. Today, I’m sharing a super fun, easy and festive pattern with you (because it’s March now)! It’s a 4-Leaf Clover pattern that’s perfect for St.Patrick’s Day! You only need a small amount (like 25 yards or less) of green yarn and a 3.00mm crochet hook. Enjoy!
4-Leaf Clover Pattern Instructions
4-Leaf Clover Crochet Pattern
- Green worsted (4) weight yarn
- 3.00 mm crochet hook
- Yarn needle
- Stuffing (optional)
Terms Needed: Sc = single crochet, Sc2tog = single crochet 2 together, ss = slip stitch, ch = chain, st = stitch, mc = magic circle,
Leaves (make 4):
Start with green yarn.
Row 1: Sc 4 in mc. Ss to first st. (4 sts)
Row 2: Ch 1. Sc in each st around. Ss. (4 sts)
Bind off. Repeat rows 1-2 to create a 2nd piece. Do not bind off.
Row 3: Ch 1. Sc in next 2 sts. Switching to the other piece, sc in all 4 sts around. Switching back to the 1st piece, sc in remaining 2 sts. Ss to first st of row. (8 sts)
Row 4: Ch 1. (Sc2tog, sc in next 2 sts) repeat this a total of 2x. Ss. (6 sts)
Now is the point where you can add stuffing if you want. I did not find that it was necessary, but you certainly can do it.
Row 5: Ch 1. (Sc2tog, sc in next st) repeat a total of 2x. Ss. (4 sts)
Once you have created all 4 leaves, flatten them out so that the 4 sts at the bottom are lined up in 2 groups. You will work them all in the round to attach them as well as close the bottom holes. Start by attaching the green yarn to the bottom of one of the leaves.
Row 1: Ch 1. Sc 1 in the 1st 2 sts of the bottom of the leaf to join them together (you will need to put your hook through the holes of the stitches on both sides). Sc 1 in the remaining 2 sts on that leaf. You should have 2 sts. Without binding off, repeat this on each of the remaining leaves. Ss to the first st of the row. (8 sts)
Row 2: Ch 1. Sc2tog in all of the sts of the row. Ss. (4 sts).
Bind off, and sew the hole closed.
For the stem:
Start with green yarn.
Row 1: Sc 3 in mc. Ss to first st. (3 sts)
Rows 2-7: Ch 1. Sc in each st around. Ss. (3 sts)
Bind off, leaving a long tail for sewing. Sew the stem to the center of the 4 leaves, in a space between 2 of the leaves. I suggest experimenting with various positions to see which one looks best before you sew it in place.
And you’re done! Happy crocheting, and I hope you have a great day.
