I want to give you some informations about this pattern ;
|sc||single crochet (double crochet for UK/Aus)|
You will need…
- E US/3.5mm crochet hook
- Small amounts of worsted weight yarn in white and red
- A white 12″ (30cm) pipe cleaner (also known as a chenille stem)
- Yarn needle
With white yarn, leave 6″ at the end of the yarn, then ch 50. With red yarn, ch 1.
Row 1: With red yarn, sc in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across. (50 st)
Row 2: With white yarn, ch 1, turn. Sc in back loops only of each st across. (50 st)
Fasten off, leaving a long yarn end of the white yarn.
The assembly is straightforward, but I have spelled out the directions below to make sure the method is clear. Once you have stitched the first candy cane together, you should find it easy enough to make more without referring to these instructions at all.
Fold a white pipe cleaner in half and twist together. I also like to fold the sharp ends of the pipe cleaner back against itself for safety reasons.
You will now have a 3-striped piece of crochet, and a short fat pipe cleaner. Note that the right side of the crocheted piece has a thicker stripe of red showing. You can see the difference in this picture – the wrong side shows at the left of the picture:
Hold one end of the pipe cleaner in front of one end of the wrong side of the crochet, then wrap the crochet at an angle across in front of the pipe cleaner:
Pull the top end of the crochet over the end of the pipe cleaner to the front, and use the long white yarn end and a yarn needle to stitch the top edge of the crochet to the side edge of this first wrap (3 or 4 stitches should be sufficient to hold the end in place). Do not fasten off yet:
Now continue to wrap the crocheted piece gently around and around the pipe cleaner. Each wrap should just touch the wrap before. Don’t wrap too tightly – it shouldn’t be so loose that it gapes, but you shouldn’t pull it tightly around the pipe cleaner. The idea is to reach the end of your crochet at the same time as you reach the end of the pipe cleaner…
- If you have leftover pipe cleaner, pull the wraps of the crochet a little tighter so the crochet will reach the bottom (or snip off the excess pipe cleaner with wire cutters).
- It’s more likely that you may have a little leftover crochet when you get to the end of the pipe cleaner. In this case, shuffle the wraps up so they are snuggled more tightly together, and continue to wrap.
When you get to the end, use the long white yarn end from this end of the crochet and a yarn needle to stitch this end of the crocheted piece over the end of the pipe cleaner, so the pipe cleaner is completely covered.
Tweak the wraps until the red stripes look fairly even, then stitch them in place. If you wish, you can whipstitch every stitch all around the length of the pipe cleaner, but I have found that as long as the ends are securely fastened, all you need to do to keep it together is to weave the long yarn end through several wraps as shown (insert needle down into a stitch over the white edge, passing underneath the red stripe and up through a stitch at the other white edge):
Repeat this process to weave the first yarn end along the candy cane in the other direction. Fasten off all the yarn ends and bury them all inside. You will be left with a red and white striped stick. Bend one end of the stick into a candy cane shape – the pipe cleaner will hold it in this position:
Now make a few more and hang them from the branches of your Christmas tree!
