I used a 3.5 hook and double knitting wool
First make four chains (ch) and join with a slip stitch (ss) to make a ring.
*3ch followed by two treble crochets (trc)
Then one ss half way down the last trc and another ss back into the ring* to form the first leaf.
Repeat ** two more times.
For the stalk - ch4, double crochet (dc) into first chain and ss into remaining two.
Fasten off and leave yourself enough wool to close the ring (think it looks better) and sew on a small safety pin. Weave in ends.
My sister's coming over from Ireland to stay for a few days - so guess what she's getting? Plus a large handful of wee woolly shamrocks to take home.
