Has anyone made this Red Heart hairpin lace shawl?

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

 

If you, or anyone you know, has made this, I would be very grateful to see photos. I have never done hairpin lace crochet, but I have seen the video of the making of this shawl on youtube. I plan to make it for my sister's wedding in May, and I would also like to know how fast this makes up (pretty fast I gather). Thank in advance! Elizabeth

I've not made it myself but a quick look on Ravelry showed 27 members there have :)

You do have to be a member to see them though but it is free to sign up there.

Thanks for pointing me to that! I have finally joined Ravelry. I liked seeing the different versions. The pattern definitely allows for a variety of yarns.

I started doing this pattern but as a hairpin rookie I didn't do anthing to keep the loops strait when I took them off the loom. (I have seen people use a string and run it along the bar before removing the loom) I was frustrated and gave up. I want to go back to try it again.

As with all crochet patterns, alot depends on your experience using the staple (loom) and crochet speed. It is a lovely shawl....Be sure to let the rest of us know how you do...

Hello, I have. I really like this pattern and was determined to master hair pin.

here is a photo:

 

I used a cottonny yarn that had a bit of sparkle in it.

I haven't made this shawl, but I have done hairpin.  Before removing the loops, I usually use something to bunch them together.  Large clover clip or even the pins used by knitters to hold cables.  Makes it easier when joining them becuase sometimes an errant loop will sneak down in between others.
