Hairpin Shawl by Margret Willson »
InstructionsAs the yarn varied in size, I found it easier to use a 5mm hook for the hairpin loops and a 4mm hook for crocheting the borders and joining strips.

What was your inspiration?
My first hairpin project and a good pattern for learning.
What are you most proud of?
Turned out great and now looking for my next hairpin project.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This is a great pattern for learning hairpin. It doesnt matter if you only pick up 3 or 5 loops every so often, as long as you have the correct number of groups in the strip. I only did five strips instead of 6, but that was because I used a bulky yarn.
