Chunky yarn. I used Vel-Luxe Polyester Yarn and crochet hook size 4.0 mm.
Sewing needle (for weaving in the ends).
Hairpin slippers instructions.
On the hairloom on the 2nd biggest setting.
Step 1. Crochet 35 loops each loop connected with a single crochet stitch.
Off the loom, fold piece in half and weave the inner loops together. Leave the outer loops unworked.
Step 2. Crochet 45 loops on the loom on the same settings and each loop connected with a single crochet stitch.
Step 3. Weave loops on one side into each other. On the other side, weave loops with unworked loops on 35 loops piece. 10 loops will be unworked since the 2nd piece has 10 more loops. This will be the heel. Weave the remaining loops into each other and stitch to the other side of the slipper to form the heel.
Step 4. Attach yarn with a slip stitch in the side of slippers. Ch 2, *yo, attach st in next st, yo, pull through stitch, yo, pull through 2 loops on hook, yo, attach st in next st, yo, pull through stitch, yo , pull through 2 loops on hook, yo, pull through all loops on hook. *, repeat between ** all around.
I looked around the internet, but could not find Hairpin crochet slippers anywhere. Hairpin crochet technique is famous for shawls, tops, capes, and scarves. You can also make beautiful lace jewelry. I even made a Hairpin camel as you can see in the image above. Hairpin lace-making is very popular and fine yarn is often used. I like to change up the rules a little bit and sometimes use chunky yarn.
Weaving the Hairpin loops together.
When you weave the loops together, you can make any intricate shape you need for your creations. Hairpin crochet technique is also used in my Crochet Hairpin Viking ship (see image above the Hairpin Camel). You might also notice the Tree of Life Hairpin necklace where I used chunky yellow yarn.
This Pinwheel crochet pattern uses US stitch abbreviation.

Pinwheel Crochet Pattern Doily
The Crochet Pinwheel Doily has been published in Afghans and Doilies. The pattern in this book is a bit difficult to understand from row 13 onwards, so I have simplified it in the pattern above. Each row you increase each time you have to ch 6 and sc in loop as there is an increase in 6-ch loops each row. This way, the chain loops cover more and more of the outer edges until they cover all around the doily.

Doilies are fantastic to decorate your home. I am amazed at the beauty of Doilies. Some even make Mandalas in a beautiful range of colours.
