With the revival of interest in crochet generally some of the less well known stitches have againbecome 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
