St. Patrick's Day 4 Leaf Clover Necklace

St. Patrick's Day 4 Leaf Clover Necklace


You will need…
  • Green Yarn (I used Red Heart Super Saver Solids in Spring Green)
  • Pony Beads in the color of your choice (I used 32 beads for one necklace)
  • Stitch Marker
  • 3.25mm/ Size D crochet hook, or desired size hook


Stitches and Abbreviations used…
  • Ch - chain
  • Sl st - slip stitch
  • Trb - treble crochet
  • St - stitch
  • Sts - stitches
  • Rpt - repeat

Note - The length of this necklace is made for an adult, if you are making this for a child you will need to put less beads on your necklace.

As with any bead necklace, you can create the color pattern of your choice.



Leave a couple inches of yarn for beginning tail (You will use this to tie to the end tail).

Chain 4, pull the remaining loop out about 1-2 inches.



Pinch the loop, and insert it through one pony bead.



Insert the hook back into the loop, pull back into place, then complete a sl st.



Chain 2, pull the remaining loop out about 1-2 inches.

Pinch the loop, and insert it through one pony bead.

Insert the hook back into the loop, pull back into place, then complete a sl st.



Repeat until you have about 15 beads on your necklace.

Chain 3, place a stitch marker in the last ch. Chain 5, place a sl st in the first ch made of the ch 5.



Chain 2, place 2 trb in the ring previously made, chain 2, sl st in the ring. Repeat until you have 4 leafs. 



Chain 5, skip the first ch, sl st in the remaining 4 chs. Sl st in the same ring as the leaves. 


Chain 3, add a pony bead, sl st.

Repeat from owl to owl, until you have 3 four leaf clovers, or the desired amount of clovers. 


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chain 2, repeat the beginning pattern of chains and beads. 

Fasten off, leaving a tail for tying. Tie the beginning and end tails together. Cut off excess yarn.

Ami Donations for Elementary School

Some of you probably know I have been making amis for the school I work at. I work at an elementary school where we have a student store. Kids earn tickets from doing good things, helping out, etc. With these tickets they can buy things from the student store. Because of school funding the school mainly relies on donations for the student store now.



If you are any other crocheter/knitter would like to donate amis to the school I would be so grateful. Small clean items are preferred.
If I have a crochet pattern that you would like to make for a donation I will happily gift you the pattern(s).

This is a ongoing project I am working on, the student store is every other Friday, during the entire school year.
Some of the things I have made for the student store…
