Crochet It: Broomstick Lace Scarf


Crocheted broomstick lace may look super-fancy, but it’s actually quite beginner-friendly—you only need to know a few basic stitches! And, once you’ve mastered the technique, you can make lovely items like this broomstick lace scarf from Joanne at Craft Passion that are sure to bring you and your hooking prowess many a compliment!


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.
