Four-leaf clover FREE PATTERN + TUTORIAL


Hello! I prepared something special for you. If you celebrate Saint Patrick's Day on 17 March (much time left) or just want to wish someone a good luck - you can crochet easy amigurumi four-leaf clover. You can attach key ring to the clover and make a keychain. Let's crochet together! Tutorial is available on YouTube.


Tutorial on YouTube:



Materials:

  • YarnArt Jeans - green color
  • black thread for embroidering eyes
  • pink yarn for cheeks
  • crochet hook 2.5 mm

 

LEAF (make 4)

I make 4 leaves and then join them together.

Piece I

Rnd 1: 6 sc in a magic ring [6]
Rnd 2: 6 inc [12]
Rnd 3: 12 sc [12]
Cut the yarn, fasten off (I make invisible finish) and crochet in the same way piece II but then don't cut the yarn because we will join piece I and II.

Rnd 4: 1 sc (II), insert the hook in 2nd st (II) and 1st st (I) and crochet 1 sc, 10 sc (I), insert the hook in 12th st (I) and 3rd st (II) and crochet 1 sc, 9 sc (II) [22]


Beginning of rnd 4 - I insert the hook in 2nd st (II) 
and 1st st (I) and crochet 1 sc

Rnd 5: 22 sc [22]
Rnd 6: (1sc, dec) x 7, 1 sc [15]
Rnd 7: dec, 13 sc [14]
Stuff the piece.

Crochet in the same way 3 remaining leaves and then join 4 leaves together.

JOINING 4 LEAVES

I use a and b letters for indicating the first and the second half part.

Rnd 8a: We crochet decreases on every half part of clover and steadily close the hole.

LEAF I: 3 dec (starting from the marker)
LEAVES II-IV: 4 dec (starting from the side)
Come back to LEAF I and crochet 1 dec before the marker.
After joining parts together we should have 16 sc in a round.

Rnd 9a: 8 dec [8]

Fasten off (insert the needle into front loops to close the opening), hide the yarn.
The first part is ready. 
Now crochet the second part.

-------
Rnd 8b: On the second half part theoretically we should decrease 3 times, because we had 14 st in the last round of one leaf. But I will decrease 4 times to avoid holes in the corner between leaves.

4 dec x 4 [16]

If you want to add safety eyes it is a good time.

Rnd 9b: 8 dec [8]
Add stuffing. Don't close the opening, because we will sew the steam later.

STEM

Rnd 1: 8 sc in MR [8]
Rnd 2-4: 8 sc [8]
Rnd 5: dec, 6 sc [7]
Rnd 6-7: 7 sc [7]
Rnd 8: dec, 5 sc [6]
Rnd 9-12: 6 sc [6]

Sew the steam to the clover (the round of clover has 8 sc and the steam has 6 sc, so make 2 dec while sewing to adjust the number of sts).
After sewing the steam check if there are no holes  in the corner between leaves.

EMBROIDERING

I embroider eyes (or insert safety eyes) and smile with black thread.
Then I embroider cheeks using woven wheel stitch
In my tutorial I explain you how to embroider, so I recommend you to watch it. 
In short:
1. Start with embroidering 5 straight stitches - star shape.
2. Insert the tapestry needle in the middle and weave below and above the star lines.
3. Repeat until you get a wheel.
Fasten off, weave in loose ends.

Embroider the cheek on the opposite side.

Lots of happiness! :-)
