A while back I made a video tutorial on Broomstick Lace, and showed you just how easy this stitch can be. Though it looks intimidating, an experienced crocheter should be able to master it in an evening – probably less! And a new crocheter with the motivation to tackle this technique is sure to succeed. Once you’ve got it down, you can make all sorts of things with broomstick lace – and here I’ve gathered some of my favorites!
There are several baby sweater patterns here on Moogly that start with a top down yoke, with increases in the four corners that are later joined to create the armholes.
It’s a simple technique, but the first time you make a sweater like this it can be a bit of a mystery! I’ve had a couple of requests for help understanding how these armholes are made, so I’m happy to have been able to make this video!
Baby sweater patterns aren’t just for winter time! The Summer Breeze Baby Sweater is a sweet little crochet baby sweater vest that’s perfect for warmer weather. Made of cool cotton with open, lightweight stitches, it’s a great layer for warding off an evening chill, or all on it’s own as a little top!
