Broomstick lace started back in the 1800s where people actually used broomsticks to crochet this type of lace (hence the name). Now don’t be afraid, this pattern is less complicated than it looks and all you really need is large knitting needles, a dowel, or even a broomstick to create this wonderful stitch. You will also need yarn and a crochet hook, of course. Watch this great tutorial from Red Heart and you’ll be itching to crochet these broomstick patterns below!
