Ramblin’ Rose Hairpin Lace Crochet Shawl
Hairpin lace crochet is a wonderful technique of delicate stitchwork, traditionally worked in straight strips and joined evenly. I wanted to apply what I know about increases in crochet shawls to create a new shape in hairpin lace. The increase strips manipulate how many loops you join to the adjacent strip, while the straight sections join one-to-one. Inspired by the edging on a friend’s beautiful handmade Mexican macramé hammock, this edging creates scallops from within a mesh border.
