To make these clovers, you will need to know some basic crochet stitches. If you can single crochet and double crochet, then you will be good to go. Learn more about each stitch below if you’d like a refresher.
Crochet Stitches for a Clover
- Insert hook from front to back in the second chain from the hook or designated stitch
- Bring the yarn over (YO) the hook and pull the yarn back through the chain (or stitch) from back to front (2 loops on hook).
- YO and pull through both loops on the hook.
Double Crochet (dc):
- Wrap the yarn over (YO) the hook, insert the hook into the specified st.
- YO the hook again, draw the yarn through the st so there are 3 loops on the hook
- YO the hook again draw it through 2 loops, so there are 2 loops on the hook
- YO the hook, draw it through the final 2 loops.
To make crocheted clovers you will want to use Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice yarn in Dusty Green which is a four weight yarn. If you’d like to make a clover in a different color that’s fine too because Vanna’s Choice comes in a big variety of colors that you can pick from.
You could use any brand of #4 weight yarn you have on hand but just be aware they may turn out slightly different from my clover examples.
You will only need a small amount of yarn to crochet a clover so leftover yarn or yarn scraps would work great if you have any saved.
