Simple crocheted shamrock applique - photo tutorial

Few days ago I was asked if I can make small crocheted shamrock appliques. So I tried and made some. It was fun so I decided to share this fun with other people :) So - here is simple tutorial of cute shamrock applique.
I'm not so good at writing tutorials and crocheting terms so I added pictures for each step.






Stitches used for this applique:
Chain (ch), slip stitch (sl), double crochet (dc), treble stitch (tr).



So - let's start!

1. Make magic loop (or magic circle).
