Lucky Shamrock Crown
Lucky Shamrock Crown was a suggestion by one of my facebook fans. Abigail posted on my Queen of Hearts Crown saying "I love it! I don't suppose you're doing a series of crown patterns? I know so many little Celtic dancers who would love a crown like this with shamrocks for St. Patrick's day!". Normally I don't take personal requests but as soon as I read the comment an idea popped into my head I just couldn't resist. I got to work right away.
My original intention was to add the shamrocks in the same manner that I added the hearts but when it came time to add the peaks to the top of the shamrock crown nothing seemed to work. I messaged a friend and at the same time we both came up with the idea to make the shamrocks the peaks so back to work to redesign the band.
Why not make a lucky 4 leaf clover to keep in your pocket? The clover and shamrock crown both uses the flower lattice stitch. If you need some help with this stitch I have a video tutorial on YouTube that can help to teach the basics of the stitch.
