Broomstick Lace Crochet workshop with Fiona Morris
Sat 4th May @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm| £35
With the revival of interest in crochet generally some of the less well known stitches have again become popular. Broomstick Lace is one of these stitches. The stitch requires the use of a ‘broomstick’ or large knitting needle to make the loops when created the lace stitch.
Broomstick Lace crochet can be worked around a large size straight knitting needle or a large size circular needle and with the advent of interchangeable circular needles it is possible to make much wider pieces of broomstick crochet. During the class you will learn to make a double crochet foundation row as well as the basics of Broomstick crochet.
To attend this class you need to be able to work basic crochet stitches i.e. to make a foundation chain and work the double crochet stitch.
You will need:
- A crochet hook 4.00mm, 4.5mm or 5.00mm.
- A knitting needle at least 15.00mm or larger. This can be straight or circular.
- A smooth yarn to work with in either 4ply or DK weight.
