I have used Bernat Baby yarn in Antique White. The results vary with the kind of yarn you would use. There are plenty of tutorials on YouTube  on how to work the hairpin lace. Please follow that with the pattern. It is a process of crocheting shells with the help of a hairpin loom and then attaching them together as you go... 
Try it with a left over yarn first with just six  shells as sample to form a small v shape .. And once you get the feel of it go for the project. It has a beautiful rhythm in the weave and I enjoyed making it. 
 
While joining the shells please use a table or lapdesk to lay the pieces as you join. This has helped me a lot, visually and increases the speed of joining too.
Thanks!!
