Flamingo Hairpin Lace Crochet Scarf
This is a free crochet pattern for a hairpin lace crochet scarf. The hairpin loops are fast to make and the assemblage is also very easy. See the crochet diagram. The beautiful Giotto ribbon yarn from Colinette makes this scarf look very stylish!
Yarn 1 skein Colinette Giotto in the shade Madder, 50% cotton, 40% rayon, 10 % nylon, 100g/144m. 1 skein Sandnes Mandarin Petit, 100% cotton 50g/178m-195 yards.
Hook 5 mm and 3mm
Hairpin lace loom
Technique Hairpin lace and crochet
Finished size 140cm-55 inches long, 10cm-4 inches width
For a tutorial on the technique see my hairpin lace tutorial
Put the two prongs on your haipin lace loom 10cm/4 inches apart.
Work hairpin loops on each side with the 5mm hook until you have used 3/4 of the Giotto skein.
Fold the finished hairpin lace strip in a S curve, so that the endings of the loops face each other. Crochet the loops together by starting from the center of the fold with the 3mm hook. Use the Mandarin Petit yarn for gathering the loops. (One could also take the remaining Giotto yarn for gathering)
*Crochet 3 chains and work 1 single crochet by gathering 1 loop from each side*. Repeat between ** until the end of the loop strip is reached.
See crochet chart here:
The starting and finishing end of the Giotto yarn is used to sew the 2 loop ends together, so the scarf gets a round ending.
