Summer is definitely in the air and I was feeling like decorating my craft room a bit. So, I made this crochet Hairpin Lace Dreamcatcher.
I’d had the idea of making a sort of flower with hairpin crochet for a while. I think it was last summer when I first started playing around with hairpin crochet and made a sort of huge flower.
However, for one year, this flower stayed there, hidden in a corner of my messy craft room without being anything more than a round-something. But I never forgot about it and kept thinking about what I could possibly do with it.
So, I am so happy that I finally managed to transform it into something more than a half-done project!

Hairpin Lace Strip
Set up your hairpin loom at a width of 2.75” (7 cm).
Using your 4-mm crochet hook and A, make a hairpin lace strip with 60 loops on each side.
Remove your hook and place a stitch marker on the loop to prevent your work from unraveling.
With your color of choice and your 4-mm crochet hook, make a MC.
Round 1. Sc 6 in MC. Join with a sl st into the first st. (6 sts)
Round 2. On one side of your hairpin strip, divide the loops in groups of 5.
Here’s a Little Tip
To create a more invisible join between the beginning and end of your hairpin strip, leave the first 2 loops separate, and proceed to group the other ones. At the end, you will have 3 loops remaining, which you can group together with the first two loops once your strip is circularized.
*(Sc, sl st into 5 loops of your hairpin strip at the same time) twice in the first st. Repeat from * for each st around. This way, you’ll have 6 increases. Join with a sl st into the first st. (12 sc and 12 sl sts)
Remove your stitch marker from your hairpin strip and sl st into the first st of the strip to join in a circle.
Working the Outside of the Flower
Round 3. Group the loops on the outside of the strip in groups of 3.
To make a more invisible join between the beginning and the end of your hairpin work, start making your groups of 3 starting from the second loop. This way, you will join the first loop together with the last two.
Join your yarn into the first group of 3 loops and make 3 sc. Ch 3. *Group the next three loops with 3 sc, ch 3. Repeat from * other 18 times. Join with a sl st into the first st. (120 sts)
Round 4. Ch 1. Make 1 sc on top of each sc and 3 sc in each 3-ch space all around. Join with a sl st into the first st. (120 sts)
Round 5. Ch 1, 1 sc, (1 bobble, 5 sc) 19 times, 1 bobble, 4 sc. Join with a sl st into the first st. (120 sts)
Fasten off and weave in all your ends.
To attach to the loop or to the hoop, cut a piece of yarn with a length of about 60” (150 cm). Thread it onto your yarn needle, and insert your needle through any st of of the last round going from the back of your work to the front. Holding your crochet work inside the loop, thread your needle around the loop going from front to back. Sk 1 st and insert your needle into the next st from the back to the front of your work. Repeat all around and fasten off.
Weave in your ends.
Cut 42 to 72 pieces of yarn of approximately 35” (88 cm). Fold the lengths of yarn in half and attach them to the bottom of your loop or hoop as you normally attach fringes.
Please, note that in the images below, I pulled my fringe from the back to the front.
1-2. With the help of your crochet hook, pull the length of yarn from the front to the back of the loop grabbing it from its center.
3. Pass the tails of yarn through the pulled-up loop.
4. Tighten your fringe by pulling the tails of yarn.
Decorate your fringes with beads, braids, or macrame stitches.
