Pattern Notes

To complete the hairpin lace infinity scarf, you will be creating 4 strips of hairpin lace using the traditional single crochet stitch for a total of 230 loops, or stitches. After each strip has been crocheted, you will join them using a braided method and finish the sides using the same method. The finished scarf measures 25″ from one end to the other after sewn together and 6″ wide.

You do not need prior experience with hairpin lace to complete this pattern, however, I do recommend that you have some experience crocheting. If you consider yourself an advanced beginner, you should have no problem following along with my tutorial!

There will be no written pattern for this scarf because the concept is really quite simple. If you are familiar with hairpin lace and you would like to create this scarf without the video, simply crochet 4 hairpin lace strips with your loom on the widest setting using the single crochet for a total of 230 stitches. Once you have crocheted your strips, braid them together by grouping 5 loops at a time while zig-zagging up the length of the strip. The sides are finished using the same method only braiding up the side rather than zig-zagging.

Hairpin Lace Infinity Scarf Video Tutorial

This pattern is also available for left-handed crocheters! Click here to be directed to the left-handed tutorial on Youtube.

  • This was my first time watching one of your tutorials and I absolutely loved it. You have the perfect voice and the pace of instruction was just right. Great video production. I do want to try making the broomstick lace scarf. Thanks so much.

    • Thank you so much, Aura, I really appreciate it!

  • This is my first hairpin project so pardon my stupid question. When you say 230 loops, is that 230 on each side?

    • Yes it is, it’s a good question! If you don’t count on both sides, you may end up with one side too short.

  • Saem

    I never hairpin lace loom crochet before and I’m so excited to try this! I just finished watching your video and understoon whole parts. I was looking for hairpin lace loom from michael’s and walmart but couldn’t find it πŸ™ and I’m eagar to try it right away so I’m gonna DIY myself! I have final next week so might be slow but I will definately make this!!

    • That’s a great idea! I purchased mine from Hobby Lobby if you have one of those near you. If not, I’ve seen where people used knitting needles and cardboard to make a loom!

  • Wow! This is just gorgeous. I can’t wait to try it.

  • Carolyn

    How wide is the loom?

  • Pingback: Link Love for Best Crochet Patterns, Ideas and News β€” Crochet Concupiscence()

  • Thanks to your video, I FINALLY can learn how to use the loom I’ve had for over 50 years! I’m fascinated!

    • That’s great, Barbara!! Wow, I’m so glad I can help you to finally use your loom!

  • Holly

    This looks awesome! What a gorgeous result! Looking forward to trying it! I am curious about the loom though. I went to look for one and they don’t seem to be standardized. I found one that was 4 inches max and one that was 3.5 inches max. I’ve never done hairpin lace before so I didn’t know how big of a diff that .5 inches would have made. What size is yours? πŸ™‚

    • Mine is set to 4″ max although I bet that half inch won’t make a big difference. If anything, it will be slightly skinnier than mine.

  • Stephanie

    I am making this now. I just so happened to have three skeins of Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable in my stash. I KNEW I was waiting for something special to make with this yarn! This is also my first attempt using the hairpin loom. It’s a lot easier than I thought it would be and works ups really fast! I cannot wait for this to be finished. And I have a feeling when I wear it, I’m going to get a lot of, “Can you make me one??” What a beautiful pattern! Thank you!!!

    • Yes, get ready to take orders! I love unforgettable yarn colorways. It’s going to turn out beautifully!

      • Mikey, I really like the way you show your work as you go, and your hands are not bloikcng the viewers, like some tutorials. I am new to youο»Ώ tutorials. I like what I see and hear so I did subscribed to you site thank you for your hard work. I have been crocheting for over 40 years.You counted your stitches so how could did you come out wrong? How you corrected is fine, but you could also just take thoese extra stitches out. I have seen other teacher do that.

  • Cathy

    Can’t wait to try this! Thank you so much for sharing your pattern. πŸ™‚

    • My pleasure, Cathy!

  • iris harris

    could you tell me is the 25 inches for the hairpin scarf the circumference or the folded length thank you

    • Hi Iris! The 25″ is the folded length for this scarf.

  • I have started your hairpin lace infinity cowl pattern. I am not using variegated yarn, but am hopeful that it is going to be beautiful. It’s it possible to send you a picture when I’m done?

    Thanks for your time.

    • Hi Ellen! I would love to see a photo! If you follow me on my Facebook or Instagram pages you can share the photo on my Facebook timeline or tag me in instagram so I can see it πŸ™‚

  • Hey Brittany! I have 1 panel finished, but wanted to tell you that I really loved your suggestion on rolling each panel after stitching. So I decided to try putting a piece of string on each side of the loom just after starting the panel. I had to tie a loose knot at the top. That way I don’t have to try and feed it along both sides after I’m done. It’s working!

    • That’s a great idea! I’m so glad your enjoying the pattern. Thanks for the suggestion!

  • Zoe Zefo

    You have just saved my crochet life. After viewing many instructional videos over the years, and not getting the clear instruction I needed, I was about to stop crocheting for ever. But, your instructions are so good, so clearly stated, videographed so well, I feel renewed! Thank you so much! I plan to buy a loom and go to town, with your video right next to me. You have given me new hope that I can not only begin a project but finish it also. I love how you tell us what will come and then explain it in more detail, like a “heads up”. Very, very good.

    • Hi Zoe! I am so humbled and grateful to read your words. It warms my heart to know that my videos renewed your motivation to crochet! Thank you so much for sharing this with me and I give you a big warm welcome to B.hooked Crochet πŸ™‚

      • Zoe Zefo

        Nice to hear back from you and I feel good that you feel good πŸ™‚ I bought the last hairpin loom at Hobby Lobby (not available at JoAnn’s or Michael’s in Fort Wayne, IN). I usually don’t shop at HL because of their corporate policy of preferring to sell to Christians only, but that’s how much I wanted the loom!

        • I’m glad you found one! In my area, Hobby Lobby was the only option as well. But it was very affordable, plus I was able to use a 40% coupon as well! Have fun with your scarf and share a picture with me on my Facebook or Instagram if you’d like!

  • I love, love the video and the pattern! I have 6 skeins of the same brand of yard (different color), in my yarn stach. I have been waiting for a pattern to “speak” to me before I used my beautiful yarn. Your pattern is the ONE!!! I have had this yarn for at least 2 years! I have a question about making a baby afghan with this same pattern. Would this be sutiable for a baby afghan and how long would I make each section? I can figure out the width. Again, thank you for “THE” pattern and the excellent tutorial! Have a blessed day!!!!!!!!!!

    • Hi Susuan! Wow, I’m so excited that my pattern is “the one”. What an honor! Each strip in this pattern measures approximately 50″ long. Depending on how big you want your baby afghan to be, you can add or subtract stitches to match.

      This pattern looks stunning as a blanket! I’ve seen a few pictures and I have added it to the “must crochet for living room” list!

  • Kate

    Which of the RH Boutique Treasure yarns did you use? I love those colors and can’t seem to find the same one.

    • Hi Kate! This beautiful colorway I am working with is called “watercolors”. Good luck in your search! It seems to be readily available in my area πŸ™‚

  • Just finished making this one and it turned out lovely. Thank you so much for being such a great teacher and for sharing the pattern with us!!

    • That’s great, I’m so glad you loved it!

  • M Jean

    Good Morning Brittany πŸ™‚ Exactly how long is your loom? I didn’t realize they came in different lengths until I went looking for one at Amazon. I assume the longer the better or more useful for other projects but I would be happy with whatever length you have. πŸ™‚ I would love to make some of these cowls as gifts. They are just beautiful!

  • Donna Marie Anderson

    love love all that you do! <3 thank you

    • Hi Donna!
      Thank you so much for taking the time to write this comment. I can’t even explain how much it means to me πŸ™‚

  • Donna Marie Anderson

    Good Day, it is Friday! I am working on the hairpin lace infinity scarf Brittany! I could not find a loom at our Michael’s so I did a DIY homemade one with reinforcements! If it wasn’t for you I would not ever have learned to do this nor have the courage to try. It was your video and instruction that made this all possible. I love to listen to your voice and I truly love being inspired like this!

    Where did you get your hairpin lace tool? Yours has long bars.

  • Maggie Austin

    I am currently working on this pattern, I am also using the boutique treasure in watercolors, but mine seems to look different than yours, fuzzier and it is shedding. On the pictures yours looks so smooth. Is this yarn supposed to be fuzzy and shedding?

  • Marlene Helbling

    I would like to make this cowl for my 7 yr old granddaughter. How should I adjust the pattern? Put bars of loom closer together? Less stitches? 2 or 3 strips instead f 4.

    I was wandering if by chance you might decide to start selling your creations as well. I saw the Hair Pin Lace Infinity scarf that you made and love it. But, I would like it to be a lot longer than pictured, allowing me to wrap the scarf 2, 3, or 4 times if I want and still have enough hanging so that it’s seen as a long scarf, with the same color pattern that you used. I really like the scarf and would be willing to pay you to make it for me in a longer version.

    Hey, Thank you for the tutorial, I saw it this morning and didn’t have the hairpin loom and decided to just use what I have. Knitting needles, legos (from the kids) and rainbow loom bands to hold the legos in place. Worked great!
