Hairpin is a lace making crochet technique. This pattern is a simple, yet beautiful hairpin crochet pattern that can made into a beautiful headband, bracelet or belt. It can also be used as a motif to create a top or skirt.
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.
I love crochet on the heirloom. It has become something of an obsession. This crochet pattern was made while experimenting on the heirloom and using beads for decoration. I trust you will have fun making this crochet heirloom pattern.
Round 1. 1 sc each loop until 3 loops each side: 3 loops together with 1 sc. 3 loops together every round (each sc ends up one loop above the last). After 8 loops each side remove work from heirloom.
Round 2. Pull 2 loops through previous 2 loops twice. Repeat other side. Insert 2 loops through a bead (as picture 1 and picture 2 show) using crochet hook size 1.0.
Round 3. Attach yarn to 2 loops with sc. *Attach to next 2 loops with sc*, continue between ** until all loops are connected, 1 sl st opposite side to tighten the gap. End with 1 picot in sl st.
Go to a special place where you feel like you can connect with nature and look for a rock to put inside your crochet pendulum. You can also use gemstones and crystals. The rock will give your pendulum weight which is important for it to work properly.
How to crochet Heirloom bobble crochet earrings tutorial
You are bound to attract some attention wearing these chunky earrings! This is another heirloom crochet obsessed project where I started freestyling on the loom and something magical appeared. I love these chunky earrings as they are very colorful and cheeky, not to mention FUN. You can almost knock yourself out wearing them!
Crochet the same pattern each side of the heirloom.
This heirloom crochet pattern starts with creating 15 loops each side on loom.
Start with connecting first 2 loops with 1 x sc each, then 3rd loops together with (sc + bobble st), * continue crochet 3 loops together with sc, and every 3rd, 6th, 9th, 12th and 15th loops together with (sc + bobble st). You now have 15 loops and 5 bobble stitches. Remove work from loom.
Continue crochet as follows:
Insert hook through all 15 loops one side and connect them with 1 x sc. Now use remaining yarn from the first loop of the heirloom work and insert it through the 15 loops the other side. Attach with sc. Reinsert hook in sc other side and turn work inside out, sl st in sc you just created opposite side. 1 x picot in sl st. Push the bobble stitches through the bottom if they aren’t already popping out. Fasten off. Attach earring studs. You have now made your own divine heirloom crochet earrings. Congratulations!
Picture below is the diagram. O is sc +bobble stitch + sl st, and X is sc. Each bobble stitch on hairpin starts with a sc, bobble stitch (ch 3 + 4 tr tog), sl st in bottom of bobble stitch. Every 3 loops are crochet together with sc + bobble st + sc. In the end you have 36 loops each side. 12 x 3-loops together. Remove work from heirloom. Ch 5,* insert hook into 6 loops, pull 3 loops through the 3 first loops, ch 10*, repeat between ** to end. Ch 5, 1 sc in bobble st. Ch 5, and continue between ** again until end. Ch 5, 1 sc in bobble st. Fasten off.
