Broomstick Crochet/Lace

We have a new course coming up on 2nd March, where we’re going to be introducing some eager crafters to the world of broomstick crochet.

It’s easier than it sounds, doesn’t involve sawing off heads of brooms (just a 20-25mm knitting needle will do!) and gives a lovely effect that can create some gorgeous throws, shawls, bags and, in one old book we have, a very attractive bed cape. It looks a bit like this one pictured (Image source Free Vintage Crochet – there’s a free pattern there too!), but more 70s.

So, as we’re getting excited about learning a new craft, we had a look at some blogs and tutorials on the web that can help us prepare. There’s a lovely one here at Occasional Crafter with great photos to help you through. There’s also some great patterns from Broomstick Lace/Crochet at Crochet Pattern Central including this lovely bright and colourful baby blanket.

But, of course, all the learning online doesn’t quite compare to the fun of learning with friends, and having a good gossip, some cups of tea and a few biscuits in the process. Our course runs on 2nd March, all day, with the big knitting needle provided and costs £45. If you’d like to register your place, just contact us. Hope to see you there!
