How to Hairpin Crochet an Angel Wing Motif
Crochet hook size 3.0
Yarn: Thorobred scheepjeswool linnen light blue blue, scapyarn 4 ply white, and fluffy orange.
This pattern uses US stitch abbreviation.
Use the 2nd smallest option on your heirloom, and have one short loop, and one long loop.
On the short end, crochet 1 sc in front loop.
On long end, crochet 1 sc in back loop. This will create a 3D effect.
Make the short loop gradually longer per turn, and the long loop gradually shorter. After 15 turns (15 loops per side) per side, the short loop has become the long loop and vice versa. See picture. Repeat process x 3, all up 60 loops per side.
Release the work from loom and begin crochet on side of long loops: (15 loops tog with 1 sc, ch 5, (15 loops tog with 1 sc) x 2, ch 5, last 15 loops tog with 1 sc, ch 5, sl st in 1st sc (in first 15 loops tog). Fasten off.
Change color to white and continue crochet the other side: Reattach yarn with 5 loops tog with a sl st, 1 sc in same spot as sl st, *ch 5, 1 sc in next 5 loops tog*, rep between ** to end. (14 times).
Ch 4 (acts as tr), 2 tr in same spot (leave 1 loop on hook each tr), draw yarn through all loops tog (tr-cluster made), *ch 10, tr-cluster in next sc**, repeat between ** to end.
Change color to orange (fluffy yarn) and continue next row.
In each 10-ch sp crochet: (ch 3, 3 sc) x 3 + 3 sc. Repeat to end. Fasten off.
Reattach orange yarn in one of the 3 5-ch sp that create a triangle in the middle. In each 5 ch-sp crochet: 7 sc. All up 21 sc. Fasten off.
