Hairpin Crochet is a victorian lacemaking technique done using a crochet hook and a hairpin
It has developed into a specialist crochet style with larger tools now also being used
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 stitched worked in the center, called the spine.
The strips produced by this process are then joined together to create an airy and lightweight fabric.
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.
