Myth has it that around the fifth century, people in Ireland looked at the shamrock as a sacred plant because its leaves formed a triad. St. Patrick used the shamrock to represent the trinity – The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. Others thought it represented Faith, Hope and Love.

Why is no PDF availavle for DC #31 Shamrock?
Thank you. I look forward to making and sharing this one. It’s so pretty. Sylvia
Just think, when we have finished the year, if we could adjust them to be all exactly the same size, using worsted weight yarn instead of cotton, we could make 12 sampler afghans without repeating 1 square. Just a thought. (54 x 45 inches)
What happened to the print button?
the printer friendly button is missing. I would like to download as a PDF
What a pretty dishcloth and the pattern in plenty of time to make it too! Thank you so much!
#31 didn’t have a PDF link. I am downloading these to save to my computer. I copied it to word but I had rather have the PDF format.
is there a print option

I was pleased at how quickly this worked up. I didn’t even need to outline the shamrock! Also couldn’t find any dark green locally so I used a green/orange variegated that set off the lime green shamrock really well 🙂
