Shamrock Step 2

7.  Tape last 2 hearts to stem as shown.  Bend heart shapes to make four leaf clover.

Shamrock Step 3


  1. This is not a shamrock. A shamrock has only 3leaves. You are making a 4 leaf clover not a shamrock.

  2. There is a similarity in a crochet pattern book but I gave it away. Sabina
