Faux Broomstick Lace Scarf; Fast, Easy
Cynthia J Luciene
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.
Size S hook
3.5 oz worsted weight yarn (I prefer Debra Norville’s selection)
Yarn needle to weave in loose ends when finished
Any size you prefer; Mine turned out to be about 5 1/2 feet in length, 8 ” in width
Gauge is not very important; don’t try to make your stitches tight as you would with smaller hooks; the lacier the better!
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!
