Broomstick Lace Cowl Pattern

This crochet pattern combines the beautiful look of broomstick lace with the unique design of triple treble tall crochet stitches for an infinity scarf that is fun to create and stylish to wear.

Materials

  • Red Heart Sparkle Soft: 1 ball each 9301 Sand (Color A) and 9504 Dynasty (Color B)
  • Susan Bates Crochet Hooks: 5.5 mm [US I-9] and 16 mm [US Q] (this serves as a dowel to pull loops onto; a dowel, thick knitting needle or similar object works as well)

Special Stitches

Broomstick Lace: Broomstick Lace is always worked in 2 rows without turning the work. The first row is worked left to right, where you draw loops up onto your larger hook or dowel one at a time, holding them all there until the end of the row. In this pattern, you will pull up 40 loops onto the hook. The second row is worked to create clusters of loops. In this pattern, you will make ten clusters of four loops each. Insert hook into first four loops (working right to left), pulling them off of the Q hook or dowel. Yarn over, ch 1 for a turning chain, and sc four times into same spot. *Insert hook into next set of four loops, sc four times. Repeat from * across row. This gives you 40 loops, clustered into ten sets of four, and a row of 40 sc stitches to work the next set of stitches into. (Read our Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Broomstick Lace for a step-by-step picture tutorial.)

Trtr (triple treble crochet) = [Yarn over] 4 times, insert hook in indicated stitch and draw up a loop, [yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook] 5 times.

ABBREVIATIONS: ch = ch; sc = single crochet; st(s) = stitch(es); trtr =  triple treble;
