Free Hairpin Lace Crochet Pattern

Put the two prongs on your haipin lace loom 10 cm/4 inches apart.

Work  hairpin loops on each side with the 5 mm 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 3 mm 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.

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.

    • Hi Crochet Ching :-)
      I didn’t count the loops. But I write, that I used approximately 3/4 of the skein for the initial hairpin lace loops. That would make 108 m = 118 yards.
      You do not have to count the loops, but make the same amount of loop on the left and on the right side of the prong. Fold the finished hairpin lace loop string at the middle and then crochet the center loops together.

  2. Could you kindly clarify or illustrate how an s curve is formed? I can’t figure out how this results in a long neck scarf. Thank you.
