Hairpin Crochet patterns and tutorials

Thanks to Knitaly I found the essential key word to understand and use the knitting fork Ingrid offered me, the k-word is "Hairpin".

Looking for "Hairpin Looms", "Hairpin crochet" and "Hairpin patterns" I found all I need to know to correctly use this amazing tool and make wonderful scarves and shawls in no time. Horray! I feel I will be able to make some lovely scarves for Vik's project! :-)

Here a few links:

Thanks for sharing the links - now I got it, about how the hairpin works!

You should be excited! I just started learning hairpin myself, and I was really shocked at how easy and pretty it is. It seems like a great way to show off beautiful yarn or crochet ribbon. How is it coming along for you?
