HAIRPIN LACE CROCHET
Hairpin lace crochet is an example of a technique that makes use of a tool designed for a common everyday household task but reinterprets its use to create lovely fabric. The fabric is made by first crocheting several long strips/braids. These pieces are then combined in various ways (this is where the fun begins!) to create the larger fabric. Similar to its sister craft of broomstick lace crochet, hairpin lace crochet is distinctive amongst other crochet techniques is that it allows the artist to easily create “drape” in the fabric, also showcasing and leaving visible long strands of the yarn. As such, it is an excellent stitch choice for supple blankets and flowing garments. Technique requirements: Know how to make a chain and single crochet stitch.

BROOMSTICK LACE CROCHET
Broomstick lace crochet is an example of a technique that makes use of a tool designed for a common everyday household task but reinterprets its use to create lovely fabric. That resulting fabric features larger than usual loops of yarn gathered into groups and embellished with several single (or other) crochet stitches. One particular distinction of this among most other crochet techniques, broomstick lace crochet allows one to easily create “drape” in the fabric, also showcasing and leaving visible long strands of the yarn. It is, therefore, an excellent stitch choice for supple blankets and flowing garments. Join us as we learn the basics of this lovely technique.Technique requirements: Know how to make a chain and single crochet stitch.
