Learn a couple of crochet stitches and you’ll soon be making “peacock eye” lace.  Broomstick lace can be used to make all sorts of lacy items from afghans to scarfs to shawls.  Broomstick lace allows you to make larger items faster because the loops take up a lot of space.  Previous crochet experience is not required.

Learn some crochet stitches (chain, single crochet, double crochet, half double crochet and slip stitch) and how to read crochet patterns in the first part of the class.  Learn how to make broomstick lace in the second part of the class.

Students may provide their own supplies.  Students need a mandrill which can be a large knitting needle or a dowel, around 10 to 12 inches long and between 3/4 and 1 inch in diameter with a short but defined point; either worsted weight yarn and a size G or H crochet hook, or sports weight yarn and a size E or F crochet hook; and scissors.  Please do not bring any of the eyelash, ribbon, fuzzy or “homespun” yarns for the first project.

Supply Fees:  all supplies are $5,mandril and crochet hook are $2.25, mandril alone is $ .75, crochet hook alone is $1.50.

Instructor:  Crystal Kitchens.
