Learn to crochet through my crochet Patreon tutorials. Crochet is a craft and an art form that often brings old skills back into the modern world. In the Viking Ship tutorial, I use Hairpin crochet technique to create the dragon head.
I plan to create crochet Patreon tutorials all skill levels. I am so grateful for all the help I receive. Let me know what type of crochet tutorials you would like me to make. I can make custom tutorials for your needs.
Attach with a slip stitch and have the loop in the middle. Secure with a single crochet stitch on each loop after you flip the heirloom over. Keep making loops on each side until you have 21 loops that are secured with a single crochet stitch.
Free the work from loom. On one side, attach 7 loops with sl st, (ch 3, 1 sc in next loop) x 7, attach 7 loops with sl st.
On the other side, skip 4 loops and attach 13 loops with sl st. Attach the 4 loops on each side of the 13 loops together with a sl st. Fasten off, but don’t weave in the ends.
Instead of weaving in the end, you can leave them dangling down the sides. If you like you can use a smaller crochet hook and move the loose yarn bits to where you want them.
