This cute crochet Shamrock in a Hat applique will be a fun embellishment for St. Patrick’s Day! This crochet Shamrock is made from hearts. It wears a St. Patrick’s Day hat and a small bow. I used it to make crochet Shamrock Garland for my son’s room.

I found that St. Patrick’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to be creative. Last week I published a St. Patrick’s Day crochet Unicorn applique. The face of this crochet Unicorn is made in the shape of a heart.
Both these appliques – the Unicorn and Shamrock in a Hat continue my series of Heart Shaped Creations.
