Your shamrock will be approximately approx. 3" tall by 2.5" wide. (You can increase this by using larger hooks, which will also result in looser stitches, or increasing the thickness of yarn used as well as hook size.)
Now you can use it as an applique on the tummy or hair of your latest amigurumi doll, fix it to a brooch pin, hair barrette or pin, or even use a long hatpin to secure it to your St. Patrick's Day hat or outfit. You could even sew a few together at corners in a line, attach some elastic and make a hair band out of it. Mucho applications. Have fun, and Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Edit: You can make them into a garland too!
