    Thank you so much Heidi! A great little project πŸ™‚ I thought it was a wrist warmer until I read the title, LOL.. A great little neck warmer though… πŸ™‚ Elly

      Well, you could totally make it a headband . . . it’s a multi-purpose pattern, I suppose!

    this is so pretty- what a great idea to use broomstick lace– it’s so delicate and lovely. great work! must make this! πŸ™‚ thanks for sharing the ‘how to’. πŸ™‚

    Broomstick lace is on my to-do list too! I think every time you post about it it climbs a spot on my list because I can’t resist any longer! πŸ™‚ Great pattern! And it fits perfectly with my current cowl/neckwarmer obsession. It’d be great to make in a light yarn for a springtime accessory!

      I think I’m headed toward (another!) neck accessory obsession, as well! Trying to resist . . .

    I love this, and I love broomstick lace! I have wanted to try it since I started crocheting. I need to try it soon hehee πŸ™‚

      Hey, Melinda! Been wondering where you’ve been :)!

    • March 12, 2012 3:16 pm

      Hehe πŸ™‚ I have been around just not as often as I used to be, I had to put my blog on hold for the time being :-/ Some stuff came up in rl I did not expect but all is good and maybe one day I may have time for my blog again at least I hope cause I love it!
      But don’t worry I will still be around to read your awesome posts! ❀
      And I think I need to try this pattern, though I may turn it into a long scarf, I have a thing for long scarfs hehee! Would be nice to have for next winter!

      long scarf = more practice = more pretty

    Broomstick lace is so pretty. I’m thinking of using it as a Kindle or iPad cover. πŸ™‚

    Making an afghan based off of your pattern! thanks!

      Yes! Be sure to check out the patterns and tutorials tab — I have instructions for how to make a border when you’re all done!

    really pretty and I would love to make this but it doesn’t print. ?

    • August 31, 2012 7:27 am

      If you click the “more” button to the right of the share toggles at the bottom of the post, that should do it (there’ll be a “print” button that pops down). I’ve never tried this, so let me know how it works!

      this still doesn’t print. I really would love to make this. fix?

    • September 3, 2012 5:03 pm

      I tried the print button here on my end, and it does seem to work! I would make a PDF to link to, but my design programs are down right now. I can’t understand why the print button shouldn’t work on your end, but my next suggestion is to copy and paste the text to a word editing program (text edit, ms word, etc.) and just print it that way.

      I was having trouble printing this and with the more button also. It will print if you right click on the text.

    • October 1, 2012 4:52 pm

      Hmmm. Suspicious! I wish it wouldn’t work on my end, so I could at least trouble-shoot what’s going on!

  11. September 21, 2012 7:24 pm

    I have a question. What’s a “lace pin”?

    • September 21, 2012 9:11 pm

      It’s a tool I made to make broomstick lace — I sell them in my shop!

      When I used to do this we used a short well sanded piece of an old broom handle; hence, the name broom stick crochet. You can just buy a fat dowel and cut it. It helps to hold your place nd keep the stitches seperate as you cross over the stitches

    Esta super linda

  13. September 30, 2012 8:29 am

    I was successful at printing also. Possibly pressing “Ctrl” and P together would print.

      Ruth, thanks for letting me know — I was a bit worried!

    This is awesome! I had never made broomstick lace before now and I love working on it. Your instructions are supreme. I did have a problem printing rows 4 nd 5. The print version comes out with the sites printed out. I just copied the two rows from here and put them in a word processor and taped the finished lines over them. Thanks for so much hard work. You are appreciated.

    • October 5, 2012 4:27 pm

      Thanks so much — I’ve never had the compliment of “supreme” before!

  16. October 9, 2012 9:28 pm

    This could easily be made into a clutch purse! Add a little lining, castover three sides, and voila!

    I really love this pattern! I’ve already made one cowl for a friend for Christmas and am making another with the remainder of the ball of yarn for my step-mom. Such a lovely, fancy-looking (yet so easy!) pattern. Thank you!

    P.S. I put a picture on my blog, but I made sure to credit you for the pattern and link to your blog!

    Hi, I am Diane and I am re-learning the art of crocheting and I stumbled upon your website and this pattern and fell in love with it. I am going to try it and see if I can make this scarf I just love it!

    • November 20, 2012 7:30 am

      Awesome! I also have a lot of patterns that are geared more toward beginners under Patterns & Tutorials, as well!

    I have noticed several people trying to print and having trouble, just select the text and photos on the page you want. And copy and paste it into a word document. You shouldn’t have any trouble doing that.

    • December 30, 2012 12:01 pm

      Word — thanks, Julie. That’s actually what I do myself anyway. Then you can format it to use less paper and ink.

  21. January 3, 2013 2:13 am

    I love it. Thank you for sharing. I will try to do it.

    I made a baby blanket with this pattern. It looked beautiful. But be prepared, it uses a lot of yarn. It is worth the yarn and the effort.

    I just started the process of learning broomstick (jiffy) lace. Its a lot easier to learn than I expected!

  26. December 9, 2013 3:08 pm

    Thank you! I’m going to try it tonight! I think i’m going to make it a baggie for storing something (Haven’t thought what yet)

  27. December 30, 2014 3:49 pm

    This looks like a perfect pattern to try learning the broomstick lace stitch! I’m sure Minneapolis is inspiring for coming up with warm patterns… πŸ™‚ It seems like your pattern is very clear and thanks for adding ways to adapt it. So inspiring! Thanks Heidi!

    • December 31, 2014 7:33 am

      Thank you much! Yes, I feel like all I do is make scarves! πŸ™‚
