Here's a cute crochet clover leaf/shamrock that whips up in no time! This great video tutorial HERE teaches a four leaf clover, I only wanted one four leaf clover on my feather tree so I made a couple three leaf clovers too... I'll leave a little luck for someone else:@)
I used Sugar'N Cream Dark Pine Yarn because say it with me now... that's what I had on-hand. I'd say this is one project where crocheting tight is ok, the only stitch you're going back into is the first one! As a point of reference the smaller clover is 1.5" (not counting stem) using an F hook and the bigger one is 1.75" using a G hook.

Chain 4, 2 triple crochet into first loop, chain 3, back into first loop, single crochet to anchor.
Chain 3, 2 triple crochet into first loop, chain 3, back into first loop, single crochet to anchor.
Repeat for third and (if using) fourth petal.
Chain a stem if desired.
I just fed my beginning tail up through the stitches of the middle petal, made a knot at the top and split the threads for hanging.
For a pin: Sew it to a jewelry pin backing or simply sew a safety pin to the back.
