Crochet With A Broomstick?

A viewer requested a broomstick lace tutorial.

I forgot how much I love this stitch and I need to use it more often.

The broomstick lace stitch is a very unique crochet stitch. It’s called broomstick because it’s thought in the old days, actual broomsticks were used to make the loops of this stitch.

The video tutorial below will show you how to work the loops onto your “stick” (which in my case, is a knitting needle) and how to work them back off. I also go into how to change up the loop count when following a pattern.

I will be adding a free pattern workshop very soon for a whole project out of broomstick so if you’ve never tried it, now is the time to get familiar with it.

Be sure to subscribe to the blog if you want notice as soon as the project is added.

Also here is a link if you like the knitting needle I’m using for the stitch and want to pick one up since this is what I will be using for the free project coming up.

  1. Beautiful! Is there a way to decrease as you go up? So that you would end up with maybe two broomstick stitches on top? Thank you for the tutorial!


    1. Yes, there is. I’m actually going to be doing a tutorial on that very soon, but you would decrease as you work at least four strands (for the particular stitch I was using in the video) each row to decrease a whole broomstick stitch overall.
