All even rows are worked on the RS. Each odd row is worked in alternate directions, dropping the working yarn and picking it up on the next odd row. Do no fasten off odd rows.

A video by Simply Crochet may help you with the block stitch. Please note that the instructions are given with British-English stitch conversions, but when you watch you’ll easily be able to tell what’s going on.

Free Crochet Shamrock Patterns

Today, I searched for free crochet shamrock patterns on Pinterest and Ravelry. I learned that there are many sad patterns for shamrocks. There are a lot of four-leaf clovers that turned out nicely, but it’s the shamrock that is the iconic symbol of Irish heritage and culture, and it’s the shamrock I want to crochet.

Below are the two best crochet shamrock patterns I could find.

  2. Shamrock Crochet Pattern is also a Ravelry pattern.

I crocheted #2 using Lion Brand bonbons yarn and a 3.5mm hook. I backed the completed shamrock with felt and added a pin. You can see the finished product below. I’ve attached it to a blouse.

I looking forward to wearing the pin on St. Patrick’s Day.
