Faux Broomstick Lace Scarf; Fast, Easy

Author

Cynthia J Luciene

Introduction

Using an “S” hook (the largest, I believe) makes this scarf work up quickly; easy stitches make it easy peasy.

Turns out appearing very similar to broomstick lace.

Materials List

Size S hook

3.5 oz worsted weight yarn (I prefer Debra Norville’s selection)

Yarn needle to weave in loose ends when finished

Finished Size

Any size you prefer; Mine turned out to be about 5 1/2 feet in length, 8 ” in width

Gauge

Gauge is not very important; don’t try to make your stitches tight as you would with smaller hooks; the lacier the better!

Notes

Stitches used:

chain

single crochet

3dc cluster:  *y.o..  insert hook into indicated stitch; y.o., draw back thru; y.o., draw thru 2 loops on hook; repeat from * 2 more times; y.o. draw thru all 4 loops on hook; 3dc cluster completed

I have great pain issues especially in my neck and hands; it only took about half a day for me to make this scarf, even while taking several “pain breaks”.  I imagine anyone not having pain issues could probably  whip this up in about 2 hours, making this a great seller for carnivals and festivals and fund raisers!
