Broomstick Lace

My first attempt at Broomstick Lace:

There are some obvious hiccups, but I started getting the hang of it around row 3 or 4.

Have any of you tried it? Anything you like or don't like about it? Any tips or hints I should know?

Enjoy your weekend!

  1. Mindy,

    You are doing a wonderful job. I made a short sleeved sweater with size 3 cotton thread. It was fun. Love your hot pink yarn.

    Hugs,
    Tamara

  4. That looks gorgeous! It's on my list of stuff to try, going to have to give it a go soon. Come and link up to my Learn a New Technique page and share it with other people who want to learn something new.

  5. It looks neat. Why is it called broomstick lace?

  6. It's called Broomstick Lace because as you crochet, you pull loops over a knitting needle (or broomstick) to give it the holey-lace-like finish. It's kind of wild!

  7. That's on my list of things to learn. I love the look of it. A couple of years ago I found a broomstick lace afghan somewhere (can't remember where now) and at the time I thought...holy cow...someone put a lot of time into that thing!

  8. This is lovely - no, I've never tried it, but I have the big needle on standby and ready to use as soon as I finish a couple projects...I like the way it looks. I think I'll try a pretty scarf first!

    I have yet to try broomstick lace, it's on my list of "things to learn."
