Crochet Shamrock Decoration

Crochet Shamrock Decoration made with shamrocks with triangular Celtic Knots in the center hanging on a white mantel

Crochet Shamrock Decoration

The idea for this crochet shamrock decoration was born over 10 years ago when I submitted my first group of ideas to a publisher. A different idea was accepted and became my first published design, the Celtic Knot Scarf , and this shamrock went into ‘hibernation’. 🙂

Many Motifs Make a Pretty Garland!

Well, I recently found my notes for this crochet shamrock decoration and worked up an updated version – I LOVE how it turned out and quickly cranked out about 10! And that’s when I realized it would make a cute and unique garland. If you’ve visited my blog before, then you know I LOVE garlands and usually have at least one hanging in my home all year long. (Click here to see more of my garland patterns!) Of course, you can use just one of these shamrocks to create a pin to wear or you can applique one to a hat or bag. The possibilities are endless!

Easy Stitches Make it Work Up Fast!

To make this Crochet Shamrock Decoration you only need to know basic crochet stitches. You’ll need to know how to make a chain, slip stitch, single crochet, double crochet, half double crochet and treble crochet. The yarn I used is thin so that may take some getting used to but you can try the pattern with medium weight yarn from your stash to practice.

Size 3 Yarn Looks Best!

I crocheted this crochet shamrock decoration with Paton’s Grace yarn – This yarn was around 10+ years ago when I first came up with the idea but in different colors. I still have some of those ‘old’ colors in my stash and decided to use those. But you can use any Size 3 cotton crochet thread (It’s a little thicker than the Size 10 often used for delicate doilies) such as Lizbeth Size 3 or Aunt Lydia’s Fashion 3 thread.
