If you would like to make your shamrock maybe a little bit bigger, then simply use bigger yarn, bigger needles, or you could also cast on more stitches. Instead of twelve, you could cast on fourteen, sixteen, eighteen and then just carry the pattern through for about three or four rows, and then do the last row of bind off.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you!
