Hairpin Lace Bookmarks

Hairpin Lace sounds so elegant and looks very difficult. I have always admired how beautiful hairpin lace looks. So, this past summer I decided to learn how to do hairpin lace bookmarks.
After I had made one, I realized it is quite easy and quick to make. Below are my pictures of bookmarks I have made and are working on.

This is the Hairpin Lace part of the bookmarks I make. It twirls until I get the next round on.

This is the bookmark with the second round added. After the second round is added, it has much more consistency.
All the twirls are gone now.

Here is the bookmark with the last round added. Beautiful!!

(I made this one for my son. Can you tell he is a Cincinnati
Bengals Fan?)
