Welcome to my free pattern page. With spring right around the corner, I for one, am ready to brush off Winter and welcome Spring with open arms (allergies notwithstanding). I am uploading a pattern for a Hairpin Lace Infinity Scarf to go along with the new Hairpin Lace Tutorial (see link up above). If you are looking for any other free patterns that have been posted here, I am uploading them for free to Ravelry, so they are still accessible, and as always, if you make something from one of my patterns, email me a picture for the Reader's Gallery! Happy Hooking!
Hairpin Lace Infinity Scarf
Designed by Renee’ Barnes; copyright 2009 Crochet Renee’, all rights reserved.
Kraemer Yarn- Fountain Hill (80% Acrylic, 20% Mohair; approximately 560 yards/ 3.5 oz/ 100g) 1 skein Sparkle Lights
Size I crochet hook
Hairpin crochet loom (with prongs set at 3”)
Scarf is made of 8 single crochet hairpin strips. Each strip has 110 loops on each side. See note below regarding using markers to count loops
Step one: Tie a loop using a slip knot.
Step two: place loop over the right prong of the loom (left prong if you are left handed)
Step three: Rotate loom clockwise (left: counterclockwise)and insert hook into the loop formed by the slip knot.
Step four: pull up a loop from the working yarn.
Rotate frame clockwise (left: counterclockwise) and insert hook into the loop just made. Pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through both loops on hook. You now have one loop on each prong. Congratulations!
Continue to rotate the frame, working single crochets down the center of the strip. When you have created the desired number of loops on the prongs, cut the yarn end and pull through to finish off the strip. Leave the end approximately 9-12” long for sewing.
When creating many loops, it is helpful to place stitch markers at regular intervals (here every 20) to make counting loops easier.
Holding two strips together, insert hook into first loop of the first strip, catch the first loop of the second strip and pull it through the first loop on the hook. Continue to alternately pull loops from each strip through the loop on the hook. At the end, yarn over from one of the yarn tails and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull tail through, finishing off join. When the desired number of strips are joined together, finish the edges of the scarf by inserting the hook into the first loop at one edge and catching the second loop and pulling through the first loop. Continue in this fashion until the edge is finished; use one of the tails as before to finish off the edge. Repeat edging finish on the opposite side. Twist the scarf. Using yarn tails and yarn needle and matching ends of strips up, sew the ends of the scarf together, weave in ends and trim.
