Crochet Broomstick Lace
Video Tutorial: Crochet Broomstick Lace
You will need a large knitting needle or PVC pipe to to loop your stitches over. You can choose any size crochet hook or yarn. I used a size "I" hook and some scrap 4-ply worsted weight in my example.
I have taken the original broomstick video down to revise it a little bit. I started off showing how to do the stitch alone. I did not include how I hold the knitting needle or pipe. I do all the crocheting and video recording myself so certain angles are difficult. After some thought, I was able to incorporate how I achieve the final broomstick lace in an easier method than the original tutorial portrayed.
Row 1: Knitting needle row. Turn the chain and loop the first chain over the knitting needle. Put your hook through the next chain and pull the loop through the chain and over the knitting needle. Continue across until you have 16 loops on your knitting needle. Turn.
Row 2: Pull 4 loops off of your knitting needle. Put your crochet hook through the 4 loops pulling the yarn through, chain 1, then do 4 single crochet through the 4 loops. pull 4 more loops from the knitting needle, do 4 more single crochet. Turn. Continue across your row. (you can do 3 loops or 5 loops. I just used 4 in this example)
Row 3: Knitting needle row. Pull up the first loop and put it over the knitting needle. Pull the yarn through the back loop only of the single crochet, then loop over the knitting needle. Continue across until you have 16 loops on your knitting needle.
You will continue with row 2 and 3 until you complete the length of your project.
