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.
