This is a blanket made with the hairpin lace method. It is a type of crochet. Here is a website about it. http://weefolkart.com/content/hairpin-lace-instructions

I'm not that up to date on hairpin lace, but the pictured stitch reminds me of a mile-a-minute afghan design worked in the round on both sides of the starting chain, then in the last round, the hook is inserted in each of the st and a long loop drawn up. After finishing off that loopy round, the loops are woven together 3 at a time.

Yes, Charlotte, that's what I thought of at first too, but couldn't quite get how the weaving would work. Then someone suggested in one of the replies on this thread that it might be hairpin lace so I googled that and sure enough, I found a whole tutorial on exactly this method! It looks pretty cool, and something I want to try, just so I can say I did it!

Just curious: Have you made any progress with the hairpin lace yet?

I would think you could do all kinds of variations with this pattern (from lots of strands pulled through the loops down to just one, and adding different twists, too). I really like hairpin lace as edgings, which is what I've mostly used it for.

P.S. If you don't have a hairpin lace loom, here's a very clever tutorial for how to make a simple one: http://www.onepointystick.co.uk/2010...pin-lace-loom/. (I'm assuming most folks on this forum have a few pairs of knitting needles!)
