Would like to learn Hairpin Lace!

Recommended Posts

I am interested in learning Hairpin Lace and was wondering if anyone could tell me if there's a good book, kit or pattern to start with? Is there a Hairpin loom (not sure what else to call it...) that is best to start with?

 

 

Thanks! :)

hi! there is a free tutorial online at stitch diva, they also have really beautiful, unique patterns for sale. http://www.stitchdiva.com/custom.aspx?id=73

 

Wright's (the makers of Boye crochet hooks) has quite a bit of free hairpin how-to's:

Thanks so much for the info! I saw someone's post in one of the forums about a Hairpin Lace top she had made from a Stitch Diva pattern but I didn't know they also had a free tutorial online.

Stitch Diva also has some beautiful hairpin lace looms for sale (:dreaming). They are made of woods like walnut and adjust from .5" to 6.25" in width. They cost over $20 dollars but if you decide that you really like doing hairpin lace, what a pleasure it would be to use such a beautiful loom.

 

I want to make some things in hairpin lace and I would love to use one of these looms (:sigh). But realistically, I may need to go with the plastic/metal combos initially (:laughroll).

I looked at those looms at Stitch Diva! I think to start out with I'm going to go with the plastic/metal combo to see if I like it first. There's a Hairpin Lace Scarf pattern in the book Crochet Scarves by Candi Jensen that looks like it would be good for a first try!

 

Thanks!
