I’ve probably said this before, but broomstick lace is one of my favorite styles of crocheted lace. There’s just something about those curves and twists that brings to mind vintage class and old Hollywood style! If you ask me, there are few crafting techniques that look quite as elegant as a simple, sturdy repeating crocheted lace pattern made with a gorgeous yarn.
