Day 56 and the Fluffles
Yet another hairpin lace idea. This was a very easy technique that resulted in a somewhat complicated looking puffy cobweb ruffled edge.
I started with the Boa by holding 3 strands together and doing a basic hairpin lace row. When the scarf was long enough, I cut 2 of the 3 strands and with the working strand, did a single crochet in every single loop. Keep in mind even though the loops were worked as one during the hairpin lace portion, each loop from the group of 3 is worked separately to make the ruffle. Chains at each end helped get the height to reach the loops, though I think it would have been equally effective to jump straight from one end to the other as the ruffle would have hidden the jump.
