Crochet Pattern: Infinity and Beyond Broomstick Lace Scarf

November 10, 2012

When I was making this cowl, Nicky asked me what I was doing. And he thought I said “making a cow hole.” So now every time I pick up my hook, he inevitably asks me if I’m making another cow hole. Now I just nod and say “Yes, yes. I’m making a cow hole.”

Anyway, I really wanted a broomstick lace project with some meat on it – one I could really start to hone my skills on and get a lot of practice. And I didn’t want to make another cow hole. Since Tracy keeps talking about infinity scarves on the Joy the Baker podcast, I guess I have infinity scarves on the brain . . . so the Infinity and Beyond Scarf was born!

Are you ready for a challenge? Are you prepared to become a broomstick lace expert? Are you pumped for some drapey-lacey-goodness? Then join me . . . to infinity aaand beyooond . . .

Firstly, you will need to know how to make broomstick lace. I have a tutorial for that here. Also, I used this pin for my lace loops:

broomstick lace pins 2

Materials needed: one skein of Caron Simply Soft yarn, a 4mm hook, something to make your lace loops with, a large blunt tapestry needle, and scissors.

With a 4mm hook, chain 31.

  1. Sc in second ch from hook and each remaining chain. (30 sc)
  2. Pull up a broomstick lace loop (BL loop) in each sc. (30 BL loops)
  3. Work in groups of 6 BL loops. Make 6 sc in each group of 6 BL loops. (30 sc)
  4. Ch 1, turn. Sc in first st, ch 5, sk next 4 sts. *Sc next 2 sts together, ch 5, sk next 4 sts. Repeat from * 2 more times (5 sts remain). Sc in last st. (5 ch5 spaces, 2 sc, 4 sc 2 tog)
  5. Turn (do not ch 1 first). Sl st in first ch5 space, ch 1. make 6 sc in ch5 space. Make 6 sc in each remaining ch5 space to end, skipping over scs. (30 sc)
  6. Pull up a broomstick lace loop (BL loop) in each sc. (30 BL loops)
  7. Work in groups of 3 BL loops. Make 3 sc in each group of 3 BL loops. (30 sc)
  8. Ch 1, turn. Sc in first st, ch 5, sk next 4 sts. *Sc next 2 sts together, ch 5, sk next 4 sts. Repeat from * 2 more times (5 sts remain). Sc in last st. (5 ch5 spaces, 2 sc, 4 sc 2 tog)
  9. Turn (do not ch 1 first). Sl st in first ch5 space, ch 1. make 6 sc in ch5 space. Make 6 sc in each remaining ch5 space to end, skipping over scs. (30 sc)

Repeat rows 2 – 9 twelve more times (or as many as you’d like to get your desired length)

When you are at your desired length, cut yarn, leaving a long length for sewing (about 16 inches). Finish off. Weave in the yarn tail from the first row. Without twisting the scarf, bring the two ends together. Using the long yarn tail, whip stitch the two ends together evenly, working under both loops of the “v” in the scs. When you reach the end, secure yarn with a small knot and weave in the excess.

And there you have it, just in time for holiday gifting! As per usual, I would lee-ove to see photos – post ‘em here! Finally, here is a very rudimentary chart for the pattern repeat (you can download a PDF by clicking the link below the photo):

    I’m using a new yarn I found at Hobby Lobby by Yarn Bee. It’s called Diva Sequin. The yarn is light weight and variegated. I little heavier than sock yarn and wound tight. It’s going to have a different look than yours but I can already tell it’s going to be very pretty. Thanks for this wonderful pattern. Love the alternating pattern of broomsticks.

    How long was your finished scarf before joining ends?

    What size is a large blunt tapestry needle, I have been searching for one but can’t find it and not sure what I am looking for, how big, long and wide is it
