This pattern is quite intricate and not for the beginning crocheter! I include numerous photos throughout, but still do not recommend this for novices. The photos will however, help the experienced crocheter more easily see stitch placement.
SIZE NOTES- My bracelet measures about 7 inches around. Crochet does have a bit of natural stretch, but if your wrist is much larger I recommend using a 1.75 mm hook rather than the 1.50 mm.
STITCH NOTES- This pattern uses some advanced crochet techniques, including top-stitch, or surface crochet, and FoundationSingleCrochet (fsc). www.CrochetSpot.com is a great resource and here are links to their tutorials on these stitches-

While the pattern is similar for each leaf and each clover, there are some notable differences. It will be helpful to keep in mind that each CLOVER is made of 3 Leaves. Rather than have stars and ‘repeat this section’ I chose to rewrite the instructions for each part, I think it will help to reduce confusion.
2 sets of jewelry toggle hardware or 2 buttons and laundry spray starch will also be needed to complete this bracelet.
Please note, the ‘Cara’s Shamrock’ pattern is part of this design, so one would not need to buy both patterns. Sorry for any confusion.
