Crochet Hairpin Lace
Hairpin lace is a crochet lace making technique. You can make anything from shawls, dresses, decorations, accessories, and as you can see here: amigurumi! Anything is possible when you put your mind to it. This crochet camel was meant to be a necklace. Then it turned into a flower. Then I thought it could be a horse, and then I realised; It’s a camel! 🙂 Get more crochet hairpin patterns here.
