Broomstick Lace

Broomstick lace has eluded me for five years. I have tried off an on to follow the instructions in one of my vintage stitch guides, to no avail. Finally I decided enough was enough, and I ponied up for a class with Jennifer Hansen of Stitch Diva Studios. I did this last weekend in Portland at the Knit and Crochet Show which was fabulous, btw!

I did this little purse in the class. I just need to weave in ends and make the twisted cords for the closures. I’ve got tons of ideas now…and will be writing up a pattern for a little girls caplet using simple crochet stitches and broomstick lace 🙂

Anyway, if you haven’t tried broomstick lace, you should head over to Stitch Diva and check out her tutorials on the topic. They are fabulous! And if you can take a class from her, you’ll be enriched by the experience.

I love crochet and hand-spinning. I am visually impaired, and thus extremely tactile. I love texture and color, and creating things that feel good, and look good has made life richer and warmer.

    Great example of Broomstick – the yarn look soft and the stitches are great. Thanks for sharing.
