Hairpin Lace Crochet: New patterns and a CAL/KAL!

Two years ago, two of my hairpin lace designs were published in Crochet Now magazine. The theme for that issue was Beachcomber and I can't think of a more summer-ish crochet technique than hairpin lace. It is so quick and simple, relaxing and mindful, and results in a beautifully airy fabric full of drape, which is just perfect for summer!

I updated both patterns and they are now available on Ravelry! Bluebottle poncho uses strip-to-strip joining, the loops of each strip are joined directly to the adjacent strip.

Driftwood cowl uses a more specialized join which requires gathering loops in groups with crochet stitches, causing each strip to become a gentle wave, and then joining the finished strips together. No sewing is required for either pattern.

I invite you to join us for a Hairpin Lace CAL/KAL in the "Cup of Stitches" group on Ravelry! There are a variety of projects which can be made in this technique and they all are welcome. In fact, you may crochet or knit any pattern as long as it includes at least one strip of hairpin lace.
Check out my Pinterest board: Gradient Color Shawls for more examples and inspiration!

All are welcome, and if this is your first time trying the technique, this is the perfect opportunity to learn with the help, support, and encouragement that comes with joining a CAL/KAL!
