I love the look of Broomstick Lace, so much so that I recently wrote a book on it! Broomstick Lace has also been known throughout the years as Jiffy Lace, Peacock Stitch, and Peruvian Lace Crochet Stitch. In my book you will find over 250 photos and easy-to-understand written instructions. The first part is a basic how to crochet section. Honestly that part alone is worth it, especially if you don't know how to crochet! Then I show you 10 different variations of broomstick lace, including the very basic one. And then you will find 20 modern patterns, ranging from accessories like scarves and hats to baby items to household items like blankets and curtains. Be sure to check out my YouTube Tutorial Video to see all 20 patterns from the book!
My publisher was kind enough to release a FREE written pattern from the book for the Broomstick Lace Wrap. Grab it while you still can below! This pattern is available as a PDF (Portable Document File), which most desktop computers, tablets and mobile phones can easily read.
This is the Broomstick Lace Crochet scarf pattern that started it all! Check out my FREE pattern and YouTube how to tutorial video on how to make this. Once you see this video you will get a good understanding of how broomstick lace crochet is made!
