The Shamrock Crochet Coaster Pattern has been so successful I thought I would create a post telling you how to take the same pattern and make a shamrock crochet potholder.
And also, we will be using the same yarn weight as before.
Sounds impossible? It’s actually quite simple and fun. Keep reading for a video on how to do this.
Worsted Yarn to a Bulky:
Now I’m not asking you to grab three balls of yarn and fight tangles as you work yarn from each one. But this is much simpler than that.
While the three leaves of a shamrock stand for faith, hope, and love, the fourth leaf is luck.
I hope luck finds you, and this crochet coaster is a reminder to appreciate all the luck that comes your way.
