strip of hairpin lace. Hairpin lace is very stretchy, so the strips may vary
Rep Steps 1–4 at left until you have 270 loops wrapped around
each of the rods. Fasten off.
Joining two strips
The loop joining technique joins two strips through one or
more loops at a time without any additional yarn. Use your crochet hook to pull
the loops through. See Joining Diagram at left for assistance.
Sk first 7 loops on Strip A (these will be joined later),
draw next loop on Strip A through first 15 loops on Strip B.
Pull next loop on Strip B through loop on hook, pull next
loop on Strip A through loop on hook, continue to join loops alternating from B
to A until 7 loops on each strip have been individually joined and you have a
loop from Strip B on your hook.
Pull loop on hook through next 15 loops on Strip A. Working
in the One-to-One Joining technique (as explained above), join the next 7 loops
from each strip together. You should have 30 loops from each strip joined
together at this point.
*Work in the Fifteen-to-One Joining technique with the next
loop on Strip A and next 15 loops on Strip B. Work in the One-to-One Joining
technique over the next 7 loops on both strips.
Rep from * 6 more times, alternating which strip gets the
15-loop cluster. You should have 7 free loops rem on Strip B. Tack down the
last loop with a tapestry needle and small amount of yarn. Fasten off and weave
in ends. Rep technique for joining free loops on Strip B with the loops on
Short Sides of Scarf
Beginning with the first 7 unattached loops on Strip A,
insert hook into first loop, *draw next loop through loop on hook; rep from *
until 6 loops have been joined and the 7th remains on the hook, draw the first
unjoined loop from the bottom side of Strip B through the loop on the hook,
draw the next loop through the loop on hook until all loops have been joined,
draw the first loop on the bottom side of Strip C through the loop on the hook.
Tack down the last loop with a tapestry needle and small amount of yarn and
fasten off. Rep technique for joining free loops on the second short side.
Outside edge of scarf (Outer Loops)
Working with crochet hook on free loops of Strip A, join yarn
in first loop, *(sc into loop, ch 2) 7 times, sc in next loop, (sc into next
loop, ch 2) 7 times, sc15tog over the next 15 loops; rep from * to end, ch 1,
work 21 sc evenly along end of 3 joined strips, ch 1, working in free loops of
Strip C, **sc in next loop, ch 2, (sc into next loop, ch 2) 7 times, sc15tog
over the next 15 loops, (sc into next loop, ch 2) 7 times; rep from ** to end,
ch 1, work 21 sc evenly along end of 3 joined strips, join with sl st to first
sc at beg of rnd. Fasten off.
Fringe: Cut 66 strands of fringe, each 14" (35.5 cm) long.
Holding 3 strands together, fold fringe in half. Using crochet hook, insert
hook from WS to RS into first st along edge, pull folded edge of fringe through
to make a loop, insert tail ends into loop and pull tight against edge. Work 11
groups of fringe evenly across each short side of the scarf. Handwash,
block to finished measurements, and let dry.
