Windsock Crochet Pattern

Windsock Crochet Pattern
By Sach Sach
The windsock can be made in any Worsted weight (4) 
yarn colors of your choosing,
 for a different look or style.
 I used plastic bracelets from the store to form the top
 and bottom ring shape of the windsock.

Metal or other rings can be used.
 These are about 3.4 to 4 inches.
You must use some sort of ring or the windsock will 
not hold it's shape.

You can make the " Wurly Jigs" as long as you want them.

Attach each Wurly jig to the sock by tying securely, spacing them evenly.
I also cute 4 more lengths of yarn, all different lengths and tied those on
between each curl.

Hanger:With 2 strands of yarn -
Ch 60- Lace the ch through the top of the sock, under the bracelet and tie a knot.
 Then tie a second knot about 3 inches down.  Then hang.

This Windsock is made of Brightly colored yarn From
 Hobby Lobby, called Over dyed.

Am confused by the 'chm' in Whirly Jig instruction section... "join to 1st chm ch12, attach it to the Sock"

Never saw that term, looked it up & nothing...or is it a typo? I'm going to make some of these, think it's an awesome idea and wish I could be that creative!!!
