I am so happy to see that one of the patterns from my new book Crochet-opedia is available for free download through the Lion Brand website, courtesy of the publisher, St. Martin's Press.
Click this link for the pattern. You'll need to register if you haven't already, but why not? It's free to sign up and you'll have access to many other patterns, crochet and knit. I also receive the Lion Brand newsletter's and I enjoy them very much. Along with patterns there are yarn and kit sale notifications, amusing stories, videos and more.
Out of all the 30 patterns in the book, this hairpin pattern is my favorite. (Okay, so they are all my favorites!) I really enjoyed designing this wrap, it came together easily and works up surprisingly quick once you get the hang of making the hairpin strips. I love the yarn, Vanna's Glamour in Topaz. It was easy to work with, drapes beautifully, and the gold thread running through the yarn really makes it shine.
If you've never worked hairpin lace before, grab a copy of Crochet-opedia, which includes how-to instructions. In my book you will also find patterns and how-to's for broomstick lace, Tunisian crochet and many more crochet techniques!
