Broomstick Lace

Broomstick lace is one of the easiest yet most versatile crochet technique you will ever learn. Using a gigantic knitting needle (a ruler would also be a good substitute) and a crochet hook, you could create endless things such as a top, a cell phone case, an eyeglass case, and jewelry. It requires a basic knowledge of crochet. After that, the possibilities are endless.

Right now, I’m trying to create a beanie using this technique. I started out at an increase but I figured that it’s better to create it through decrease—I only have one needle available as I’m using the other needle for a different broomstick lace project—my first attempt to ever make a top.

It’s a lot less intimidating than it looks once you got a good grasp of it. It’s pretty simple and yet the design itself is beautiful. If you find yourself scared to use this technique, try a simple project such as a necklace or a bracelet. You might find it as enjoyable as I do.

Beautiful doesn’t always mean it’s complicated. Broomstick lace is a simple technique but it creates a very beautiful design. It’s not as ornate as Bruges lace but it’s simple and strong enough that you can make bags using this technique. Try it and see if you like it.
