What is so great about Hairpin crochet?

Well, what isnt’ great about it!!! Hairpin crochet is my favourite crochet art form. It is amazing, quick, and so relaxing, and I freestyle with it all the time. I never know what I am making. The pieces create themselves. How exciting! They are born from somewhere deep inside of me and I always feel liberated by the pieces. I use all type of yarn and hooks, from chunky yarn to finer lace yarn. Check out the Hairpin Crochet Gypsy Poncho.

How to Crochet a Hairpin Gypsy Poncho ~ And be a Knockout at Local Festivals

Hairpin Crochet Poncho pattern poncho crochet pattern

Crochet Poncho Pattern.

This crochet poncho pattern uses a Hairpin motif that looks like Angel wings or a Butterfly.

Make to Angel Hairpin Motifs as seen in image below. Click here to get pattern.

crochet hairpin angel wings pattern angel wings hairpin crochet pattern

One is a motif for the front and one is a motif for the back. Connect the two with either a chain or string. I used craft leather strings. I attached wire at the ends of the leather strings by wrapping around it and then I created a loop. In the loop I attached a safety pin that I attached to the motifs front and back.

I used chunky yarn and made the poncho fringe. Attach 9 pieces of chunky yarn to the front and back in different lengths. Wear your Gypsy poncho on top of singlets or dresses. :)

Broomstick and Hairpin Flower

This pattern uses US crochet stitch abbreviation. 

Crochet Material

Broomstick needle

Hairloom

Crochet hook size 3.0

Sewing needle

Scissors

Crochet yarn: Botanica multicoloured. I use one with predominate blue colors and one with predominate yellow colours.

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.

With Multicolored Yellow yarn:

Round 10. Continue crochet other side of hairpin motif as follows: *4 loops tog with 4 sc, ch 8*, continue to end, end with ch 8, sl st in 1st sc. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
