Broomstick lace makes for gorgeous edgings. You can crochet these edgings on anything that you can pull up a loop in - crochet, knitting, fabric.
I’ve spent quite a bit of time coming up with original Broomstick lace edgings. One day I will publish a collection of them.
I’ve shared a pattern for one of them below. I’ve got a trick for doing picot stitches - watch for it in my blog post tomorrow.
For National Craft Month, look for a tip a day on my blog until the end of the month.
