A month ago, I never knew the name of the stitch I so love to make but do not know how. If you notice from my previous works that I have so many treble stitches in between horizontal lace mesh:
This is me, attempting to actually do the so-called hairpin lace effect I’ve been eyeing over the years through windows of shops and magazines, until now.
Through a fellow crocheter, fats of http://crochetology.net, who introduced me to the term: hairpin lace, and lori of http://lorisart.blogspot.com/, who showed me that I could create a makeshift hairpin loom, my world literally turned upside down. I am gaga over hairpin lace now. I love incorporating it in anything I can create and everytime I see fences, or grills or anything that has two parallel bars, I imagine me crocheting lace in between.
So far, i have made a makeshift hairpin lace loom using rubber soles of old slippers and two double pointed bamboo knitting needles:
I was able to make this hairpin lace collar:
And then I bought this small crochet fork from a fellow raveler at http://handmadebybheng.blogspot.com which is very small I do not know if I can make further use of this:
And i started a dress that is also showcasing a hairpin lace collar
Now, (since I get bored so easily) I am starting another project with hairpin lace collar again 😀 hahaha.. I have yet to test my patience on a full hairpin lace garment because, working with the loom is really very crazy and tiring! Aja! Aja!
Let’s work hard! Hook up!
