Hairpin Lace Crochet

free crochet pattern hairpin lace scarf

This is a free crochet pattern for a hairpin lace scarf.

Spring is in the air and everyone wants to get rid of  muddy and muted winter colors. Here is my try to get you in spring mood :-)


Yarn 2 skeins Grignasco Kid Silk Five. One skein in the shade #1118 and one in the shade #1117. 75 % mohair and 25 % silk, 25 g/0,88 ounce – 125 m/137 yards. This type mohair yarn is a little thick compared to many others. I deliberately chose it, because with a thinner mohair yarn, you will have to make more loops to achieve the desired width of the scarf. This is a fingering weight yarn

Some thin, white cotton yarn as safety line for the loops.

I think the scarf looks best by using two contrasting colours, else the colours will blend too much.

Beads   About 150 small pink glass beads and 14  dark red glass beads, slightly larger than the pink beads.

Hook 3 mm  US: 2/C

Hairpin Lace Loom

Tapestry needle

Sewing Needle

Technique  Hairpin Lace and crochet

Finished size   width: 15 cm/6 inches    length: 160 cm – 63 inches

Free Crochet Pattern

For a tutorial on the technique see my hairpin lace tutorial. These instructions show the basic loops in hairpin lace.

Put the two prongs on your haipin lace loom 8 cm/3 inches apart.

Start working with the light colored yarn. String about 10 light pink pearls onto the yarn.  Work 28 loops on each side. Place the pearls evenly on the left and right side of the center.  Tie a strand of waste line around the left and right loops. That way your loops don’t twist around and they’ll stay organized. Cut yarn and weave in ends. Make 14 hairpin lace pieces like that first one.

Now you want to join your hairpin lace pieces with the darker colored yarn.

Row 1  [Grab 4 loops of a hairpin lace piece and crochet 10 chains. 1 sl st around the next 4 loops] Repeat 6 times.

Row 2  Now you join another hairpin piece to the one where you crocheted the loops together.

 Chain 7, [1 sl st around 4 loops of new hairpin lace piece, chain 5, 1 sl st in other hairpin lace piece’s middle of 10 chains below, chain 5] Repeat 6 times. 1 sl st into last loop.  Chain 7 and crochet a sl st into starting chain.

Repeat row 1 and 2 13 times, so all 14 hairpin lace pieces are joined.

Please see the crochet chart below for a visual instruction. The chart doesn’t show the width of the work, but is an example, if the scarf would be 16 loops wide. The first row is shown in black and the second row is green.

The edgings of the scarf are crocheted this way: String 7 dark red beads onto the yarn.

Row 1   [Grab 4 loops of a hairpin lace piece and crochet 10 chains. 1 sl st around the next 4 loops] Repeat 6 times.

Row 2 [ Chain 16, 1 sl st 7 chains from hook to form a small ring. Continue working into this ring: 1 sc, chain 3, 2 dc, chain 3, 1 sc, chain 3, 1 dc, place one bead close to hook, 1 dc, chain 3, 1 sc, chain 3, 2 dc, chain 3, 1 sc, 4 chains, 1 sl st in beginning chain’s 6th chain, 5 chains,1 sl st in below row’s chain, where the hairpin loops are gathered.] Repeat between brackets 7 times. Weave in ends.

Repeat row 1 and 2 for other side of scarf.

See chart below for the edging. This is a small sample of the pattern and not the whole width of the scarf.

The stitches in the ring are shown in green for better visibility.


dc   = double crochet

sc   = single crochet

sl st  =  slip stitch
