Okay, so now you've seen the finished shawl -- how did I make it? First, you need a hairpin loom and a crochet hook. By working around the loom and crocheting down the center, you create the base of a very pretty lace.
Once you've got a 240 loop strip complete, you join the 5 loop groups into an edge with chains in between.
I am so very pleased with the finished piece, that I think that I will make myself the same shawl (pattern from Red Heart Yarn's Hairpin Lace Shawl). Maybe in a pale brown or dark green color for the fall season.
My next project is a cotton dress for my granddaughter, Alexa. Hope to show it off soon.
In my last blog, someone asked me to post a photograph of my completed Mystery Crochet Pattern purse, so here it is!!!!
I REALLY LOVE THE WAY THIS TURNED OUT!!!
