I’ve never liked the tradition of getting pinched on St. Patrick’s Day for not wearing green. Maybe it’s because the idea never made any sense to me, or maybe it’s because I never had any clean green clothing to wear on St. Patrick’s Day when I was growing up. Let’s just say that I was the kid in class that claimed to be wearing green underwear year after year, but still got pinched….hard. I hated it!
Since I despised getting pinched year after year on St. Patrick’s Day, I think it’s quite natural for me to share a simple project to help me…and YOU…prevent getting pinched on the holiday this year. This easy four leaf clover crochet pattern can be whipped up in 3 minutes, even less if you’re skilled at crocheting. So you will have no excuse to be caught without something green to wear this year. Let me share with you just how easy it is to make these cuties.
For this project you will need the following:
- Green Worsted Weighted Yarn (I used Vanna’s Choice in Kelly Green for this tutorial.)
- Crochet Hook Size H (You can find my go-to hook HERE)
Four Leaf Clover Crochet Pattern Instructions:
Chain 4. Slip stitch in 1st stitch to join.
Chain 4. 2 double crochet in ring. Chain 4. Slip stitch in ring. (1st petal made)

In case you’re wondering…yes, I timed myself when I made these. I grabbed my yarn and crochet hook and in less than 3 minutes had an adorable four leaf clover for St. Patrick’s Day. This simple four leaf clover can be made into a lapel pin, attached to a hair barrette or headband, or tied to a garland for a festive decoration for the home. The deal is…I provide you with the pattern, then you use your imagination to create something special with it. Good luck, although I have a feeling you won’t need it with these lucky four leaf clovers!
