Red Heart Super Saver Lucky Clover Throw

You don’t have to be Irish to enjoy the symbol of optimism and good luck! Crochet this wonderful four-leaf clover throw to brighten someone’s day or wish them good luck.

Use a gauge of 1 square measuring 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" to crochet a throw that measures 45" wide x 72" long, not including the border. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
