How to Crochet a Four Leaf Clover Crochet Headband

Learn how to crochet a four leaf clover in this photo tutorial. This free crochet pattern includes step by step photos. Plus how to add the crochet clover to a headband.

In honor of March, Saint Patrick’s Day and Spring approaching I crocheted this Four Leaf Clover to adorn your little one.  I chose to add my four leaf clover to a toddler sized headband. It would also be cute as a “bow tie” for the boys, or just pin it to a hat or shirt.

For this little crochet four leaf clover I wanted to create something that was pretty and girly so I chose a lighter green. I really like how this clover is a little wavy.

In the loop, chain 3, trc, dc, sc, dc, trc, ch.3

Slip stitch the chain 3 back on to the loop. One of your four leaf clover is made!

Repeat 3 more times for a four leaf clover, or only 2 more times for a three leaf clover.

Two leaves completed.

Three leaves completed. I actually stopped here for a regular, unlucky clover.

I attached the three leaf clover to a headband I already had for my daughter.

Here is the four leaf clover. You really have to slide and push the other leaves together in order to squeeze in the fourth leaf.

single crochet

Sc around all the petals. I crocheted 3 sc on the beginning ch. 3 for each leaf.

Once you have sc around your four leaf clover, cut your tail and weave it in.

I sewed a button on to the center for a bit of detail.

To make the headband, I used some purple and white baker’s twine from Dollar Tree, you could use the same yarn or a contrasting color. To fit my toddler, 12-18 mos, I chained about 45 inches long; I wrapped it around three times, threading it through the back of the four leaf clover.
