Hairpin Lace Tunic

I've been busy making samples to show off the new yarns.   Here is a lacy tunic in hairpin lace crochet, made in the Bamboo Tape (150 yds, $16); color: berry.   It took 3 skeins.



I got the pattern from Kristin Ohmdahl's book Crochet So Fine.     It was a simple pattern and there are great directions for learning how to do hairpin lace crochet, if you don't already know how.   I highly recommend it.

  1. Oh my gosh...that is fabulous!! It looks even more wonderful than I imagined when I saw the half-finished piece. That reminds me, I'm stuck on a step in the cardigan I'm making...I'll have to seek your expert advice shortly. :)

  3. Robin, yup! Kale is a cool weather crop. They, like cabbage, do especially well in the fall when the cooling temps make them sweeter. Definitely try them in the coldframe...they might go all winter for you in there!

    1. Lise - If you read the post above, there is a link to the book where you can find the pattern. It is not a free pattern available through this site.
