To print a list of all crochet abbreviations to keep in your crochet notebook, check out my quick guide here:
Ws – YO and insert hook into designated stitch, YO and pull up a loop (three loops on hook). Pull the last loop through the middle loop on your hook, YO and pull through the remaining two loops. YO and insert hook into the same stitch (three loops on hook). Pull the last loop through the remaining two loops on your hook. Skip one stitch and repeat.
This pattern is worked into sections, starting at the middle and working outward – first you’ll crochet the hairpin lace strips, braid them together and then crochet the woven stitch accent on each side. For a more detailed tutorial of the woven stitch, check out this resource:
Once you have finished crocheting your scarf, I recommend you wet block it to settle the stitches into a nice, clean shape. To see how to block any project, check out this resource:

Waves Hairpin Lace Scarf – Tutorial with Brittany
This tutorial is also available in a left handed version. Click the link below to be directed to the left handed video on my YouTube channel.
Step #1 – Make two strips
Crochet two standard hairpin lace strips with 375 loops on each side. Use guides or stitch markers to group loops in sets of 25. Fasten off but do not release your stitch markers or weave in your ends just yet.
Step #2 – Braid the two strips together
Place your two hairpin lace strips side-by-side. Working in sections, release one stitch marker at a time. Place 5 loops from one strip on your crochet hook. Leave them on your hook while placing 5 loops on your hook from the other strip. Pull the last five loops through the first five loops. Now continue to “braid” the two strips together, 5 loops at a time. When you reach the end, secure the “live loop” with stitch markers so the braid doesn’t come out.
Step #3 – Add the woven accent
Row 1: Group first 3 loops, twist and fasten on new yarn. Make 3 sc in this first group of 3 loops. *Group next 3 loops and make 2 sc. Rep from * to last group of 3 loops. Make 3 sc in last group.
Row 2: Ch 1 (does not count as st). Sc in first st. *Sk 1 st, ws in next st. Rep from * to last st. Sc in last st.
Row 3: Ch 1 (does not count as st). Sc in first st. *Sk 1 st, ws in next st. Rep from * to last st. Sc in last st.
Rep row 3 until your woven section measures approximately 2″. Fasten off and repeat on the other side.
Step #4 – Finish it up
Use the tail directly adjacent to the “live loop” to secure the loop and lock it in place by weaving it in.
Make 6 tassels that measure approximately 4″ long. Attach one tassel to each corner and one tassel at each end of the braid.
Weave in your remaining ends and wet block.
