Hairpin Lace Shawl from Vogue Magazine 2007

Hers is a shawl I thought about making but never got around to it. I've never done any hairpin lacing. I have heard that it's very easy.

If I take on this project, I will probably make it a bit shorter. Although she appears to be dressed up, I wouldn't have a problem wearing this over a shirt or turtleneck for work.
One thing though. It does look as though it would catch on to a lot of things with it being a bit loopy.

I began a hairpin lace scarf a year ago but never got to finish it. I found it to be easy.
