Hairpin Lace Online Class: Guest Instructor Jennifer Raymond
Sunday, October 11 & 25
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Interested in trying a new technique? Hairpin lace is a classic crochet technique that people may not know is crochet. It's beautiful, quick and easy to learn!
Hairpin lace originally used a lady’s hairpin as a loom. Now hairpin lace is formed by wrapping yarn around the prongs of the hairpin lace loom to form loops, which are held together by a row of crochet stitches worked in the center, called the spine. The resulting piece of lace can be worked to any length or joined together to make larger fabrics. Various types of yarns and threads can be used to achieve different color, texture and design effects. Examples of items made with hairpin lace include scarves, shawls, hats, baby blankets, afghans, and clothing. Hairpin lace can also be added to sewn, knitted, and crocheted works as a decorative accent.
