Hairpin Lace Scarflette
Hairpin lace is a wonderful crochet technique. You can make beautiful accessories with it in no time. This project has a whimsical rococo touch to it with this faded green hue and it is ideal for a gift. I have made a photo tutorial about the Hairpin Crochet Technique.
Hook 3 mm US: 2/C
Yarn One skein DROPS Cotton Viscose in the shade #12 sea weed. 54%cotton 46% rayon, 50 g – 110 m, 1,76 ounces 120 yards. There is very much shine in this yarn due to the rayon content. This is a great yarn for crochet projects, if you want some stitch definition.
Are you in doubt which yarn to use for a project like this? Read my tutorial How to substitute Yarn!
Hairpin Lace Loom
Finished size Width: 6 cm = 2½ inches Length: 80 cm = 31½ inches
You cannot buy this pattern, since I made up the project by myself. If you want to make a similar scarf do the following:
Place the prongs on your loom 5 cm – 2 inches apart.
Make 108 loops on each side.
Grab 4 loops and crochet these stitches into the 4 loops, that you hold together: [3 double crochets, chain 5, 3 double crochets]. (US crochet terms).
Repeat this step 26 times more. Now you have made one side of the strip. Make the other strip the exact same way. I only crochet into the side loops. There is no crochet work done at the top or the bottom of the scarf.
Below I show the scarf with a tiny brooch or you could also make a choker with it.
