Vix Knits… and crochets and sews…

My adventures in the wonderful world of arts and crafts

New technique – broomstick crochet

on July 28, 2015

I had a lot of things on my ‘to learn’ list this year.

Broomstick crochet was pretty low on the list but it was suggested as an advanced workshop for Folk East this year (more on that another time)

So, of course, I volunteered not only to learn it but to put together the help sheet for the workshop and teach other people!

The original piece I found on Pinterest wasn’t actually very helpful so I went on the hunt.

YouTube was again my friend and I found a brilliant tutorial by Crochet Ever After.

I have to admit that I find the process a little tedious but the results are amazing.

Now I just need to make sure I can still manage it with a slightly larger ‘broomstick’ rather than the 10mm crochet hook I’ve been using
