According to Irish tradition those who find a 4 leaves clover are destined for good luck, as each leaf in the clover symbolizes good omens for faith, hope, love, and luck for the finder.
I had a thought, however, good luck can be hard to come by if I am only relying on finding a four-leaf clover. Instead lets make one with given talent (in my case its crocheting) and it’s always proven that the good luck comes with hard work. 🙂 I know, I know bit philosophical but its good to have some rational thoughts, right?
This is a very easy motif to make. You can try different yarn weights and textures to get amazing results. You can use them to make beautiful crochet garland to decorate, make patch work or make accessories like gorgeous headband or wrist band. Ultimately use your creativity to make use of these beautiful clover leaves.
