Crochet Pattern: String of Shamrocks Garland

By Amy – 1 Comment

I love a chance to decorate for another holiday. No sooner is one over before I put up decorations for the next. St. Patrick’s Day is coming soon but rarely do I find any decorations in the stores that I really like. As always, I say, make your own! And I do. Here is a lovely strand of little shamrocks just dying to be hung up in your home. The shamrocks are small and can be made in a matter of minutes. Make them in one color or get creative and use a handful of different greens. The garland string is made with two strands of yarn held together and features little circles at both ends for an easier means of hanging. Make nine shamrocks as suggested or make as many as you like!
