For St. Patrick's Day — the Trefoil Hearts Shamrock

Early last year, I was on a roll with the Trefoil Hearts. After I had done the Butterfly, I came up with a cross made out of Trefoil Hearts (you can see it under the Designs in Progress tab), and then — since everyone was tatting shamrocks — I also tatted this Trefoil Hearts Shamrock. Unfortunately, I only posted it the day AFTER St. Patrick's Day!

So, this year, I am not making the same mistake. Here is my pattern for the Trefoil Hearts Shamrock, nice and early! I haven't run it by any test tatters yet. So, if you do find any problems with my pattern, please do let me know, and I will post an updated version. Thanks! :-) (The thread I used for this sample is Lizbeth Leafy Greens, Size 40.)

Trefoil Hearts Shamrock, March 2013


  1. Love your shamrock. I will try your pattern when I can start tatting hopefully it won't be long.

  2. Oh, dear! Shamrocks already? I haven't tatted a heart for Valentine's Day yet!

    Your shamrock is lovely, and I will give it a try!
