This shamrock is easy for beginners or those who have only moderate experience with crochet. Unlike other tutorials on the internet, this shamrock is made by producing all the parts separately and sewing them together. This may not be acceptable to some and may go against crocheting etiquette, but it makes it simple without complicated instructions. Another advantage to making the parts separately is that you can make them any size or make modifications in the shape without having to know more than one or two stitches.
You will also need to know how to create a circle using a half double crochet or double crochet such as in this video.
