1. The first one seemed too ripply to me, so I figured my gauge was off and made the next one.
2. By the time I finished the second one, I realized that I had misread the pattern and double-crocheted in the second row of both shamrocks instead of half-double-crochet.
3. I made the next one following the pattern exactly. And while it looked nice, it didn't look quite right.
4. So I made the last one just like the first one, except I used the magic ring method instead of making 12 double-crochets in one chain stitch.
Looking at them now, I think the second one looks the best.
