Don’t be caught without green this St. Patrick’s Day! This Crochet Shamrock Scarf is the perfect accessory! Made up of all SC stitches with a shamrock embellishment on the ends made by following the pixel graph provided. Each square in the graph is one single crochet stitch. All you need to do is follow the graph pattern row by row.
Download the Shamrock Graph HERE and HERE.
You will start by following the one that is right side up and then when you get the scarf to the length you want, you will follow the upside down graph to add in your second shamrock for the other end of your scarf.
I made about 185 SC rows of the light green in between the graphs. It took me one afternoon + evening to complete the entire scarf. A great project to work on while watching a movie since there is no counting for the majority of it!
Finished Scarf is 58 inches long without the fringe. The fringe is 6 inches long on either side.
– Bernat (Spinrite) Super Value Yarn in Lush and Kelly Green. Purchase it HERE from the Yarnspirations website!
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Tapestry Needle
SC = Single Crochet
Start by Chaining 20, make a SC in second chain from hook and the rest of the way down chain, chain 1, turn (19 SC)
Row 2-20: Follow first graph (the one where the shamrock is sitting right side up). Follow the graph row by row starting from the bottom and working up. Work right to left and then the next row should be worked left to right, repeating. Each square equals one SC stitch. Change colors accordingly to graph. When possible, don’t fasten off your yarn and carry that strand up to the next row.
Row 21-165 (approx – make scarf as long or short as you want): SC in each stitch across, chain 1, turn (19 SC)
Row 165-185: The last 20 rows are works by following the second graph where the shamrock image is upside down. Start from the bottom of the graph and work your way the top.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Attach 6 inches of fringe to bottom of the scarfs! For each piece of fringe: Cut three 15 inch pieces of kelly green yarn. Fold in half and pull through bottom SC space. Loop through or knot. Do this for every other SC space. Trim ends so they are even.

Super cute! Thanks for sharing!!
I have never worked with graphs before and Am a new cricketer. Going to make this for my 17 to son who was born on St Patricks Day. Just to be clear- you don’t turn when working the graph portion?
Oh Yes, you always turn. 🙂
You give us so many fun ideas, all of the time! Thank you so much for sharing!
Super super cute. I started working on it right away this evening once I checked my email.
I was slightly frustrated though working on the shamrock. I am a visual person with crochet patterns and I couldn’t quite figure out how to do the shamrock (changing colors and such). I did some research and was wondering…did you use intarsia technique for the shamrock? Thanks for such a great idea!
Mine is done for tomorrow! thx for the pattern! It was nice quick and easy. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
This is a great pattern! My question is how would you go about making the shamrock smaller? I have tried to make a head band with this graph and it is just too wide. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance 😉
Loving this pattern! Featuring it on my blog for this month’s Pattern Round up St. Patrick’s day themed items. Check it out here https://catastrofebella.com/2017/03/05/10-irish-crochet-patterns-for-st-patricks-day/
I love this – as someone who’s recently dabbled in graph based crochet, I think this is easy enough for a first timer. I’ve included it in my St Patrick’s Day Crochet Pattern roundup over on Stashing Yarn – https://stashingyarn.com/12-awesome-free-st-patricks-day-crochet-patterns/
