Lucky Shamrock Hair clip

Posted by  ·  March 16, 2008  ·  Last Updated: May 10, 2016

If your little girl needs a bit o’ green tomorrow it is not too late to make this little hair clip. It is based on this crochet pattern by Suzie—-so I am hoping it works for you if you give it a go. It only takes a few minutes.

I used a size 4 crochet needle and embroidery floss (all 6 threads).

Chain 6, dc in 2nd chain from hook and then slip-stitch in remaining 4 chains (this makes the stem), chain 3 and join with a slip-stitch in the 3rd chain from hook to form a ring. For petal *chain 3 turn (only turn the first time), trc , dc , trc , chain 3 and slip-stitch in ring*. Repeat between * two more times so you have 3 petals. Fasten off and weave in the ends. Sew your lucky shamrock to a bobby pin or hair clip.

Now this little girl can tell her big brothers NO PINCHING!

    This is adorable. I made one for my daughters using just ribbon and hot glue--love the crocheted look, though!

    I tried this and it just turned out terrible! lol

    then I tried again just kinda modifying the pattern and nope, no go. Just doesn't look as neat as yours. Although I think if I downsize my hook + thread it might work better.

    I still bookmarked this though :)

    I really wanted to make that, but saw it was crochet! I don't know how to do that... only knit. Maybe you could figure out how to convert it to a knit pattern? It's so cute!

    That's a really cute idea! I've never crocheted with embroidery floss but it looks like it works well. I wonder if it splits more than regular yarn.
    Thanks for the pattern!

    Hey Girl, I’ve been reading your blog for awhile now, and I recently started a blog of my own. I added a link to your page, and I was just making sure it was fine with you.
