50% Off This Week ~ A New Pattern For Fall

The Blossom and Broomsticks Infinity Scarf is the newest pattern in my shop. I wanted a cute and lightweight scarf that transitioned well from summer to fall and this is what I came up with.

However, if you change the yarn recommended to a wool, then you’ll have a great scarf to transition from fall to winter. 2-fer!!

The “dropped stitch” effect is made with broomstick crochet.

Never tried broomstick crochet? No problem!

The pattern includes an exclusive step-by-step video tutorial on the full pattern repeat. You can learn broomstick as you go.

New Free Pattern Time! Broomstick Lace Shawl

I recently made a Broomstick lace tutorial, but wanted to give you a pattern to go with it. Here is the Broomstick Lace Shawl. It is a pretty easy shawl once you pick up the broomstick part. It’s great for anytime of year and drapes so well you can wear it like a scarf too.

Spoiler alert: A new giveaway will be up tomorrow, and from the pictures above and the beginning of the tutorial video will give you some hints as to what it is. Be sure to follow the blog if you’re not already, so you get first notice when the giveaway gets posted.

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.
