who uses hairpins to do broomstick because it is less awkward - certainly easier to carry about.
Enjoy The Making

Broomstick is easier and you can work one row broomstick, crochet loops together and add the next row of loops right on top of it to create a full piece. Hairpin is a little more complicated and you cannot add another section on top due to the fact the loom has to be turned constantly (a little difficult when a large piece is hanging from it). The hairpin designs usually require you to complete the strip/strips and then join them when they are off the loom.
Here are some reference pics I found showing the tools and the strips of lace they produce. A variety of center "knots" can be done in creation of the hairpin strip, the knot in the picture is a basic stitch. The broomstick is merely a very very large knitting needle shape. The hairpin looms are various and this is just the most common one. The only off the loom crocheting done to both that may be similar is a process of weaving the loops to each other rather than crocheting. ,

I love the idea of a hairpin section too... I learned how to do basic hairpin strips and would love to see discussions to take me to the next level/step.
Hi and welcpme to the ville:hook
If you want to start a discussion or ask a question about hairpin, do feel free to post. The Help section would probably be the best place for how-to questions, either under general crochet help or crochet stitch help. If you want to discuss hairpin, get opinions, etc, Other Crochet Topics would probably be the best section. Even though there is not a specific section for hairpin, the topic is welcome:)
