How to crochet a shamrock garland

Posted by  ·  February 25, 2011  ·  Last Updated: February 25, 2011

This Friday Flashback is a quick little project to get your home festive for St Patrick’s Day!


I used Suzie’s Crochet Shamrock Garland for the basic pattern. Suzie even has a pattern to make it into a shamrock pin.

My changes are in green.


Crochet hook size J
Small amount of worsted weight yarn



Chain 4, join with a slip stitch in first chain to form a ring.

Petal (make 3): Chain 3, trc, dc, trc, ch 3, slip stitch in ring.

Stem: Chain 6, sc in 2nd chain from hook, and slip stitch in remaining four chains. Fasten off. Weave in ends.


To join into garland:

Chain 40.

Ch 12, sc in the top of right side of shamrock petal, chain 2, sc on the left side of top of shamrock petal.

Ch 12, sc in the top of right side of shamrock petal, chain 2, sc on the left side of top of shamrock petal, chain 12, continue until all shamrocks are joined.

Ch 40, fasten off.

    Annie is interested in making this. Can a first timer follow the directions and be able to make it or do you have to have some experience with crocheting?

    People have mentioned making garland out of My Shamrock Pin. This is how I did that. Definitely not the only way, but positive an simple way.
