That's a lovely broomstick lace scarf and would work for all kinds of dainty things--even edgings.

I added a broomstick lace collar to a crocheted cardigan I made several years ago (from a Doris Chan pattern). She recommends using a large knitting needle to form the loops. I tried this and didn't have much luck (sometimes my fingers aren't very coordinated). You'll never believe what I ended up using instead! Yeah, a broomstick! I was able to lay the broom across the table with the handle sticking out and sit comfortably in a chair and make broomstick lace till the world looked level. Now isn't that amazing? Making broomstick lace with a broomstick! Will wonders never cease!?

Would love to see your creation! Do show and tell (please)!
