I was really torn between several designs but hairpin lace crochet holds a special place in my heart. I love the braided, lacy look it has.

Specialty Stitching

Hairpin Lace Basic Join:

1) Lay strips side by side.
2) Working in loops on left strip, insert hook into first indicated number of loops.
3) Working in loops on right strip, insert hook into indicated number of loops and draw through left strip’s loops on hook.
4) Insert hook into next indicated number of loops on left strip and pull previous loops through.
5) Insert hook into next indicated number of loops of right strip and pull previous loops through.
Repeat 4 and 5 until end. Secure by finishing off with a tail of closest strip.

 

Hairpin Lace Basic Finishing Edge:

1) Insert hook into double the indicated number of loops.
2) Draw second indicated number through first indicated number of loops.
3) Insert hook into next indicated number of loops and draw through.
Repeat 3 until indicated. Secure by finishing off with a tail of closest strip.

 

Adjusting Table Runner Length

Using table length measurement as a guide, multiply that number by 5. That number will be how many loops you need on both sides of the hairpin lace loom when creating strips. This calculation will allow for a 5” overhang on both sides when laid across the table without overstretching. Because hairpin lace crochet creates such an openwork design, getting an exact measurement is unlikely.

To calculate an estimated yardage for each strip with adjusted length, use the table below as a guide but be sure to round up:

Amount of loops figured out above divided by the following:

Large 6” strips Medium 4” strips Small 2.5” strips
2.235 2.98 3.166

 

Pattern Instructions

275 loops on each side make a table runner that fits a 55” table with approximately a 5” overhang on each side.

Pictures on page 1 & 2 show: Swan in middle – 6” strip and uses 123 yards. Silver next to Swan on both sides – 2.5” strips using 87 yards each. Raindrop on both edges – 4” strips using 93 yards each.

 

Create the following strips

(If the strips become too long for the loom, remove the bottom frame and most of the lower loops. Make sure to keep some on the loom. Return bottom frame to loom. Roll the removed loops and secure to bottom frame with scrap yarn. See the Tips & Trick To Hairpin Lace post.)

Strip 1: 6″ strip of 275 loops on each side in Swan (123 yards)

Strips 2 & 3: 2.5″ strip of 275 loops on each side in Silver

Strips 4 & 5: 4″ strip of 275 loops on each side in Raindrop

Use contrast color as guide before removing loops from loom if desired. Roll for easy storing and set aside.

 

Hairpin Lace Table Runner Crochet Pattern

Step 1: Join a 4” strip to a 2.5” strip. Secure. Finish off the edge of the 4” strip.

Step 2: Join the 2.5” strip used in step 1 to the 6” strip. Secure.

Step 3: Join the 6” strip to the second 2.5” strip. Secure.

Step 4: Join the 2.5” strip used in step 3 to the second 4” strip. Secure. Finish off the edge of the second 4” strip.

Also, add fringe to edge or leave raw.

Finally, weave in all ends.
