Hook 4 mm
Hairpin Lace Loom
Technique Hairpin Lace and crochet
Finished size 34cm/13½ inches long without braided ends. 3½cm/1½ inch width
For a tutorial on the technique see my hairpin lace tutorial.
Put the two prongs on your haipin lace loom 4cm/1½ inch apart.
Work 68 loops on each side. Each side of the hairband is crocheted this way: *Pick up 4 loops keeping the twist in them and work 8 single crochets in the center space of the group of these 4 loops*. When you have made the first 4 single crochets pull the yarn, so the 4 single crochets are placed at the very right side of your work. Then you have enough space to add the last 4 single crochets and the work will look neat and even.
Repeat between ** 16 more times. See chart below.
Darn in the beginning and ending thread of the hairband.
Cut 6 80cm/12 inches strands of yarn. Pull 3 strands through each end of the hairband, so the strands are equally long. Braid the strips together, so you can tie the headband.
Make a knot at the end of the braided strips.
