Crochet Instruction

Start by Broomstick Crochet.

With Multicolored Yellow yarn:

Ch 15, sl st in ch 1 to form ring. 15 loops on thick broomstick needle. Turn.

Round 1. (3 sc in 3-loops tog), ch 3, continue all around, sl st in 1st sc.

Round 2. Ch 1, sc in same st as sl st, 2 sc in each of next 2 sc, *ch 3, 1 sc in 3 ch sp, ch 3, 2 sc in each of next 3 sc*, rep between ** around, end with ch 3, 1 sc in 3 ch sp, ch 3, sl st in 1st sc.

Round 3. Pull loops on broomstick needle from scs only, all up 35 loops. Turn.

Round 4. (5 loops tog with 3 sc, ch 5) x 7, sl st in 1st sc. Fasten off. Reattach yarn with a sl st in next 3 ch sp round 2.

Round 5. *Long loops (8 cm) around broomstick needle in 3 ch sp (leave on broomstick), sc in sc between 3 ch sp*, continue between ** to end, sl st in sc between 3 ch sp. Fasten off. You now have 10 long loops. Hint: sl st in 3 ch sp before pulling loop on broomstick

Round 6. Reattach yarn with sl st in 2 long loops tog. (2 sc in 2 loops tog, ch 20) x 5, sl st in 1st sc.

Round 7. Sl st in next sc, sl st in 20 ch sp, ch 3 (acts as 1st dc), 11 dc, ch 12, 12 dc), crochet in remaining 20 ch sp: 12 dc, ch 12, 12 dc. End with sl st in 1st sc.

Round 8. Medium long loops (5 cm) around broomstick needle in every dc (not 12 ch sps), all up 120 loops. Hint: Do 60 loops first, and release the broomstick needle, do the next 60 loops the same way. Fasten off the yarn. Leave the loops unworked on and continue working on the hairpin crochet loom. (Hairpin and Heirloom crochet are the same thing).

With Multicolored Blue yarn:

Round 9. On the heirloom (3rd biggest heirloom settings): 120 loops each side, each loop with a sc.

Attach hairpin loops one side to 120 broomstick loops: *1 loop each motifs got with 1 sc, ch 1*, continue to end, sl st in 1st sc. Hairpin motif is now wrapped around the other motif.
