I was making shamrock earrings for my mother's friend when I wrote the pattern for these shamrocks and four leaf clover.  I couldn't find a free crochet shamrock pattern that was small enough for jewelry.



Below you will find the free crochet pattern for a small, medium and large shamrock appliques as well as a four leaf clover applique.  These appliques are the perfect size for jewelry, pins, scrap-booking, magnets and more!
