I saw something like this on the net and thought I could make one myself. This is what I came up with.

Size: 12 1/2 inches in diameter
Materials:
Use worsted weight yarn; in dark green,lighter green, pink, yellow and small amount of red for mouth, crochet hook size 4.5, plastic canvas, googly eyes, pompom (for nose). You can also use Shamrock buttons and a small fabric bow instead of crocheting ones.
Gauge: not important. I tend to crochet tight, so gauge may vary.
Note: All done in single chain .

Face
Chain (ch) 4, join to form a ring, ch 1, 9 single crochet (s c) in ring, do not join this or following rounds. Place a marker at beginning of each round.
2nd Round. 2 sc in each s c.
3rd Round. * 1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc, repeat from * all around.
4th Round. * 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc, repeat from * all around.
5th Round. * 1 sc in each of the next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc, repeat from * all around.

Ears: (make 2)
Ch 4, 8 dc in 4th ch from hook and fasten off.

Shamrock: (make 2) in lighter green yarn

(Leaf 2): Chain 3, triple crochet three times in ring, chain 3, single crochet once through ring.
(Leaf 3): Chain 3, triple crochet three times in ring, chain 3, single crochet once through ring.
