Many people believe that the horseshoe is a symbol of good luck and protection.
The superstition is that if the horseshoe is hung upwards like letter “U” then it will bring good luck to the house and will keep bad luck away.
But doesn’t matter if you believe in this tradition or not, you can just have fun crocheting this applique!
As I designed these appliques for St. Patrick’s Day, they are embellished with small shamrocks.
You can make your horseshoe double lucky – embellish it with 4-leaf lucky clover applique!
The pattern for this crochet Horseshoe applique is also available as a print-friendly, styled and advertisement-free PDF file. The PDF version includes the pattern for the Shamrock and Lucky Clover appliques. You can get it from my Etsy Shop.
