Cactus lace
Hi! I saw a scarf that I wanted to make called a Cactus Lace pattern, but can't find the pattern. Does anyone know where to get it or how to do this stitch? I'm just looking to make a quick little fashion scarf for my niece.
Thanks!

Knit or crochet? I found a cactus lace scarf on ravelry in broomstick lace crochet. It's in a book called Crochet Scarves: Fabulous Fashions, Various Techniques

I also found a Cactus and Lace shawlette that's knit.

I was thinking that this stitch would be really nice for an Infinity Scarf.

Yes, it would make a great Infinity scarf. Check your local library to see if they have or can request the book, you can use the Rav library link to search. (don't be surprised if that link comes up for Montana, it may be connected to the cookies on my computer; just change the city/zip code to yours)

I found a nice pattern for the infinity scarf that I wanted to create. If anyone else is interested in this crochet pattern, here's the link:

I saw that pattern when I was looking around for broomstick lace info and patterns. I like that pattern, it would also make a nice shawl or something. What have you decided about the cactus lace pattern?

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)!

I'm still working on it, but I'll post as soon as I come up with something. What I'm thinking is using the knit drop stitch idea but twisting them after the drop row. That's what I love about the cactus pattern, is the twist in the crochet. Stay tuned!
