Let Freedom Ring Hairclip, free crochet pattern



What could be better for July's monthly inspiration than an accessory for Independence Day (I've also created a free hairclip pattern for your neighbors to the north). This fun hair clip pattern is created out of thread and has some advanced techniques. I've offered a lot of photos to aid in the creation, so if you're an adventurous beginner - give it a try.


Or click here to create the Strong & Free hair clip.

The hair clip measures 4 1/2 inches wide by 2 inches deep.

It is a total of 8 inches long with the "curls."
Ready to get started... Let's go!!!!

As usual, I've included many slideshow presentations after each section of the pattern to help you along a little. If you'd rather just print out a pattern (no photos) it can be accessed via the PDF file at the bottom of the post. Just remember, this pattern is sole property of EveryDayWomanCrochet designs by Sheri K. Please don't reprint it without my permission (everydaywomancrochet@outlook.com); however, you do have my permission to sell as many of the finished product as you'd like.

Materials: You will need:
·         Aunt Lydia's Classic 10 Crochet thread, small amount each;
o   #001/White
o   # 494/Victory Red
o   #487/Royal Blue

·         Crochet hook size D/3-3.25mm

·         1.75 inch x 1/2 inch hair clip base

·         Needle (for working in ends)

·         Craft glue (Okay, I know the glue I've used
is pretty heavy duty, but I don't need to worry about
it becoming "unstuck" - you can use whatever kind of glue
that you like).
Gauge: There is no gauge determination needed.
