Broomstick lace is a fun way to use something the diameter of a broomstick handle along with your crochet hook. This craft technique has been around for a very long time dating back to the 1800’s. It is simpler than it looks and has made a comeback as seen by the amount of tutorials and patterns in the market place today.
The “handle” diameter is what will define the size of the opening and the lace-effect you desire…….from a simple 1/2 inch to 3 inch and more dowel, pencils, pens, broom handles and more can be used, basically anything you can wrap your yarn around.
See the attached tutorial here and the free pattern for Broomstick Jewels II! See more free patterns on my ♥freepatterns♥ page and get that yarn going in circles.
