This little fellow is sure to bring you luck all year long!   He's quick to crochet and super charming to have around.  I grabbed this free pattern from crochetspot.com and added a face to give it a little more personality! This would make a great brooch, coaster, giant bookmark or more.  What will you do with yours?

Sometimes it's hard to see what you're doing from photographs of yarn crafts, so I compiled some charts to interpret how to do each of the different stitches.  I hope this helps you along your way to making your own four leaf clover!
