how elastic is it? I just need it to be horizontally elastic, and my mind is telling me that yeah, it should be, but I'cve been wrong many a time when it comes to crocheting. TIA for your help!

I'm in the middle of a broomstick lace scarf, so I grabbed it and gave it a few test-tugs.

I've been using single crochet in between the broomstick rows and I would say that it is just as horizontally stretchy as any other single crochet. The broomstick parts are sort of loose-ish, in that the loops are big enough that it doesn't really change anything if you yank them around sideways.

Hope that makes sense, basically it is just as stretchy as you would expect regular single crochet with big open rows in between to be.
