Shamrocks - gotta be green

While this may not be the song you think of when you think of St. Patrick's Day, I always think of this song when I think of green.  Poor Kermit, struggling with being different and having to come to terms with it.  What does that have to do with today's post?  Ummmmmm ........ nothing really.  Other than today's project is green.  It's a stretch I know, still, go with it!

So today I have this for you:

You can use it as a fridgie, a pin, a bookmark, whatever you want to.  It uses a minuscule amount of yarn so it is a great scrap project, and it takes about 15 minutes to put together.  Seriously!  You can use what ever yarn you want just adjust your hook size accordingly.

You will need:
 a 3.75-mm Crochet Hooks, Size F

and Red Heart Super Saver Yarn: Paddy Green

a darning needle
a pin back if wanting to turn it into a pin

How to:
using a magic circle as your base then *chain 3, work a triple crochet, half double crochet, triple crochet, ch 3, join to magic circle*.  Repeat between *'s once more.  Chain 6.  Work a double crochet in the 2nd chain from hook, half double crochet in next, single crochet in next, slip stitch in next 2 chains, slip stitch into the magic circle.  Repeat between *'s once.  fasten off.  Tighten magic circle then weave in ends.

That's all there is to it!  Enjoy!
Until next time,
