I’ve seen this stitch a long while ago and immediately felt in love with it 🙂
It took me from then a lot of time to check how to knit (or actually to crochet) that Broomstick lace stitch (also known as peacock stitch), but I’ve finally made it thanks to that video :
and so, after a little attempt, I’ve finally get out of my comfort zone (aka : knitting scarves with cables only), and tried this 🙂
I used a yarn from Hand Maiden Casbah Yarn, color “Blackberry” made of 81 % Merino, 9% cashmere, 10% nylon.
Crocheted it with my favorite lighten crochet from Lite Crochet Hooks, Size 3.5mm (I love these crochet, because I think it’s quite geeky and silly to have and use a crochet that can have light in it….) NOTHING can stop me anymore from crocheting ! 🙂
And so here we go, here is how it looks like (I love it !)
You have to get used to that stitch, it takes a little bit of time, but then, after few rows, it gets really nice and enjoyable… all you need is to find your rythm 🙂
I’ve been tired of knitting and crocheting scarves, and since I’ve started this one with a very large base, I didn’t have enough yarn to have it really long.
But it is actually ok : I’ve decided to use my pin that I use on my flamenco shawl, and pin it on this little scarf 🙂
I kind of like it ! and you may think it’s not warm, but really, it’s just perfect for me (cashmere and merino seems to be a good match for my skin) 🙂
Have you ever tried that stitch ? Please show me your work if so 🙂
