Project Highlights: Broomstick Lace

Craftsy Broomstick Lace Projects

Lace is lovely, and there’s not just one kind of lace. Today we highlight one of our favorites: broomstick lace. It’s created using both a large-gauge knitting needle and a crochet hook.  While beautiful on its own as the base stitch for entire projects, broomstick is also the perfect “crossover” fiber art to add a bit of lace to any project. Check out Craftsy instructor Jennifer Hansen’s profile for more great broomstick inspiration. And remember: she can teach you all about broomstick lace in her online class Beyond Broomstick Lace.

I love Broomstick lace. I made blanket years ago that we still use today!

Hello Crafsy,

Glad to see broomstick lace in your blog. It’s an almost forgotten thing and is so lovely.

I made shawls like this many years ago and still have the jumbo knitting needles but, I’ve forgotten how to do this. They are so pretty and lacey.
