Crochet Shamrock Garland

Posted by  ·  March 13, 2009  ·  Last Updated: March 13, 2009

This crochet shamrock garland is a great way to make your home festive for St Patrick’s Day!  St. Patricks Day ideas are some of my favorites.  This fun little crochet pattern is easy but, oh so impressive, and just another one of the free crochet patterns I love to share with you. Make a garland to decorate the kitchen window, or make a pin to give to a friend. A precious little shamrock crochet hair clip would be another good use.  This is one holiday craft that is simple and versatile.  You could alternate shades of green to make the bunting extra eye catching. Once you have this crochet pattern conquered, be sure to try out some of my other crochet patterns.  So, give the Blarney Stone a kiss, and get started; you’re probably going to want to make several garlands, along with a few pins and a crochet hair clip. Slainte! (Good Health in Irish)

    Lovely, and looks like something a newbie might possibly be able to do? I am very interested in learning how to crochet and your designs caught my eye. This post is a few years old, but still gets plenty of notice, so please sign me up for ideas, tutorials, and more. Meanwhile, I will find you on Pinterest. 💟 (Still not an avid Instagram user; sorry.) I'll put on the tea, girls, for anyone else who wants to learn. Let's all share a cuppa while we crochet!

    Thank you so much for this. I have offered to help a friend out with crocheting a few shamrocks for a church party, and lots of the other designs have been too floppy or too teeny for bunting. This is perfect!

    I made several of these for St. Pat's and gave one as a hostess gift. Wonderful! Do you have an Easter/Spring pattern that is similar (chicks, bunnies, eggs, flowers or something like that)?

    Isn't that so cute!
    My mother use to crochet tons of little shamrocks and attach pin backs to them for all the girls she worked with when I was just a small child.
    I always go to hold the finished ones for her...it was like a treat to me lol.
