Shamrock Bracelet Pattern



Skill Level: Easy

Materials:
Worsted yarn in various shades of green.
US Hook size I/5.50mm
Tapestry needle

Gauge: not needed

Key:
CH = chain
DC = double crochet
TRC = triple crochet
SL ST = slip stitch
MR = Magic Ring (tutorial here)

Wrist Sizes:
Toddler = 4 – 5”
Child = 4 – 6”
Teen = 6 – 8”
Adult = 7 – 9”
*These are average sizes. It’s best to measure the head for whom you are making the headband, if possible.

Instructions:

Leaving a 6 – 8” tail, make a chain with ch stitch for your desired length, break yarn, leaving a 6 – 8” tail.
Change color and repeat Step 1.
Change color again, and repeat Step 1. 
Align three chain lengths and knot together at each end. Trim evenly, leaving 5 – 6” to tie bracelet.
Slide strands through shamrock loops for a festive, simple bracelet or ponytail wrap.

Shamrocks: (Make 1 – 3, as desired)
Start with a Magic Ring.
In your MR, [ch 3, trc, dc, trc, ch 3, sl st to MR] repeat 3 times. Ch 5, sl st to opposite side of MR. Pull MR snug. You should have 4 clover leaves and a small loop on back (to thread headband through). Break yarn, weave ends.
