Fast & Lacey with Broomstick Crochet

Marsha Lipsius has been crocheting since her teenage years. She has entered and won many ribbons at the Markham Fair. She first learned the broomstick lace technique back in the 1980s and prefers to crochet ‘flat items’ like afghans, hats and scarves, rather than clothing or animals. She has been a member of the Markham Guild of Village Crafts for many years. Besides crocheting, she enjoys quilting, cross stitch and reading. She has three children and two grandsons.

Crocheted Broomstick Lace – All Levels

Lipsius, Marsha - Broomstick Lace2_700x525As with other forms of crochet, the base of the pattern is a chain stitch. The initial loops are transferred to an extra large knitting needle or dowel and then taken back to the chain in groups of 3 or 5 using your hook. Sound complicated? It’s really not! This technique is fast and creates open, lacy fabrics perfect for afghans, baby blankets, scarves, shawls, and other items where an unusual lacy effect may be desired. Pre-requisite: Some crochet experience. Bring: 5mm crochet hook.
