Shamrock Hot Pad

The project worked below is done in tapestry crochet. For the best possible look, it’s been worked one row at a time, fastening off each row and starting at the beginning so that all rows are worked on the front facing side. You can also use the chart below to cross stitch a shamrock on a background of white crochet, or adapt it to intarsia, Tunisian, or fair isle crochet.
