Join us for a Hairpin Lace K/CAL in the “Cup of Stitches” group on Ravelry! There are a variety of projects which can be made in this technique (check my Pinterest board for inspiration) and they all are welcome.

If this is your first time trying the technique, this is the perfect opportunity to learn with the help, support, and encouragement that comes with joining a K/CAL.

Feel light and summery wearing this weightless cowl worked in the hairpin lace crochet technique! Driftwood cowl is made with four hairpin lace strips joined in a manner that creates gentle waves.

This pattern assumes basic knowledge of creating hairpin strips, previous experience with the hairpin lace technique is necessary for the successful completion of this cowl.


  • Yarn: Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK; DK; 137 yd (125 m) per 50 g ball; 100% cotton
  • Hairpin lace loom
  • Hook: U.S. G (4 mm) for strips and 5 mm (or larger, if desired) for joining only
  • Yarn needle to weave in ends

An exact gauge is not crucial for this design. Each strip is approx 39¼” (100 cm) long and 2¾” (7 cm) wide.

The measurements listed below are only guidelines and you can make this cowl smaller or larger in circumference by working fewer or more loops for each strip.
