Today we are going to learn a truly beautiful crochet stitch. Both to practice and to use for your new projects. We call it the four-leaf clover stitch. We are fond of it because of the significance that this herbaceous plant has gained in today's popular culture. In fact, the four-leaf clover is associated with luck, as a result when we are in a beautiful green field, we have great fun hunting for this lucky charm!
According to many popular beliefs, each leaf represents hope, faith, love and of course good luck.
Even though our four-leaf clovers are made of yarn, we hope they will have the same effect as the real ones.
For the four-leaf clover stitch, we selected our own Cleopatra, in cotton and linen. And on the shop, you can find it in many wonderful colours.
This project is by Airali Design - Ilaria Caliri, a really gifted crocheter, designer and blogger.
