When I was working on my red shawl, I was already thinking about some smaller hairpin lace. Could I make it small enough to use it on a crazy block? Well, I just had to give it a try. I set the distance of my loom at 1 cm (3/8 inch) and used a size 12 thread and a size 1 crochet hook. It worked and I made a piece of hairpin lace with 50 loops at both sides. Then I removed it from the loom and tried some crochet at the edges. After a few experiments I found the look I wanted to achieve. This lace is 1,5 cm wide (1/2 inch), so I can use it on a crazy block!
