Yarn: your choice worsted weight. This used Red Heart Super Saver in Hunter Green
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
tc = treble crochet
ch = chain stitch
st = stitch(es)
sl st = slip stitch
R1 - sc 6 in a circle (amigurumi double ring) = 6 st
sl st 1 to complete the circle
R2 - *ch 3, work (2tc, 2dc, 2tc) in next st. ch 2, sl st next st.* repeat twice more for 3 leaves.
stem: ch 6, then sl st 2nd ch from hook and sl st each of remaining ch back to the centre. bind off and weave in ends.
Your shamrock will be approximately approx. 3" tall by 2.5" wide. (You can increase this by using larger hooks, which will also result in looser stitches, or increasing the thickness of yarn used as well as hook size.)
Now you can use it as an applique on the tummy or hair of your latest amigurumi doll, fix it to a brooch pin, hair barrette or pin, or even use a long hatpin to secure it to your St. Patrick's Day hat or outfit. You could even sew a few together at corners in a line, attach some elastic and make a hair band out of it. Mucho applications. Have fun, and Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Edit: You can make them into a garland too!
Take a look at my clubs!

Journal 26 - Jewelery Feature 4
Since I finally set up two new boxes on my profile page that feature my recent favourite amigurumi and jewelery, I won't post these journal features as often, but I wanted to point out a few recent faves to my friends who might not have visited recently, but would read this.

Journal 25 - Studio-Making
