CROCHET PATTERNS (Shamrock Crochet Pattern #103) – 365 Crochet Flowers Bouquet Project


Shamrock crochet pattern Irish crochet style

The inspiration for today's pattern is the Irish Shamrock. The shamrock is not the national symbol of Ireland (the harp is) but is embedded in the Irish culture since St. Patrick's time, which legends says that he used the shamrock as a metaphor for Christian Unity.

The shamrock is actually a three-leaved clover. The name comes from the Irish seamróg, which is the Irish word for a small clover.
