I am inspired in many ways by the humble shamrock... from the legend of St. Patrick using it as a metaphor for the Trinity, to the shape of the leaves looking like tiny joined the lovely green color which promises that spring is at hand! I was wanting to make a lovely spring-time shamrock bracelet, but none of the patterns I found had the lovely leafy veins that I hoped to include, so after a lot of experimenting I finally came up with what I think is a quite lovely little piece! The bracelet turned out to be quite complex, but this single shamrock is not very difficult. There is a bit of twisting and turning involved in the pattern, but I have written everything out quite thoroughly and have included several pictures to help you see exactly what should be happening where. I made the pictured sample in size 10 thread and a 1.5 mm steel hook, but any size yarn or thread with an appropriately sized hook can be used. I hope you like my little shamrock pattern!

~Heritage Heartcraft, heirloom quality thread crochet by Cara Louise Reitbauer~ I have been crocheting since about 1974 at age 8 when my mother taught me with regular yarn and larger crochet hooks. A year or so later, she found a bag that had been her mother's which contained some gorgeous doilies her mother had made, along with some skinny crochet thread and some impossibly small steel crochet hooks. I fell in love on the spot, created my very first doily without any pattern by copying one of hers, using her hooks and her thread. I have been designing and crafting small articles such as doilies, coasters, snowflakes and angels ever since! (Although I do confess to using patterns too!) Every time I make something I feel a kinship with the grandmother I was never able to meet, and so her spirit is alive in me- all these years later, and still use her hooks, which are now over 60 years old! I've got sites all over the web!
