The luck of the Irish will be with you on St. Patrick's Day with this shamrock crochet afghan. This festive afghan can also be a symbol of good luck for any time of the year. Crochet the afghan to decorate your home, or make it as a gift for someone that is in need of some extra luck in their life. Crochet each of the shamrock blocks and stitch them together when you are finished. The shamrocks look like they are floating above the white background to give this afghan texture and added brilliance. Each shamrock is framed with a thin line of green around the edge of the block. Drape the finished crochet beauty on the back of a sofa or chair in a sitting room, or place it on a guest bed for a festive feel when people come over.
This white holiday crochet afghan with green shamrock accents is the perfect combination for anyone that want some Irish luck. Use a worsted-weight yarn to make the afghan warm and durable to withstand washing. The small shamrock blocks are all identical. Once you master the first block, each additional will be a piece of cake. All the blocks will be completed before you know it. Since the blocks are all the same size, you easily pack up this project and take it with you. The shamrock pattern makes a creative afghan that is sure to draw some attention. The design is attractive and makes a great gift for the person that has everything.
