Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! Today was off to a horrible start when I realized I forgot to wear something green! With some yarn and needles, I got right to work during my lunch break to solve this problem. I knitted myself a four leaf clover!
It is really very simple, all you need is a pair of small double pointed needles – I used a size eight – a darning needle, some scraps of green yarn (I used Blackstone Tweed) and maybe a pin if you would like to pin the four leaf clover to your outfit.
Clover Petal Pattern:
Cast on 3 sts.
row 1 – (WS) Purl 1 row
row 2 – (RS) K1, kfb, k1 – 4 sts
row 3 – Purl row
row 4 – K1, kfb, kfb, k1 – 6 sts
row 5 – Purl row
right side of leaf –
row 6 – K3 (leaving the last three sts on your needle untouched) and turn
row 7 – P3 and turn
row 8 – Sl1, k2tog, psso; break yarn and pull the yarn through
left side of leaf –
row 6 – K3 (remaining three sts on your needle) and turn
row 7 -P3 and turn
row 8 – Sl1, k2tog, psso; break yarn and pull through the last st
Weave in the ends.
Make four of these leaves and sew them together at the point to make a four leaf clover.
Leave one little yarn tail hanging for the stem.
Happy making and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
