Doris Chan takes her explosive crochet techniques to the next level with these fast and loose cafe curtains. Here, she does single crochet with skinny yarn on a fat hook, then stretches the material to create fabric that looks like hairpin lace. You can make these curtains in a weekend with just two skeins of yarn.
