I have now added a step by step photo tutorial here: http://littlegreen.typepad.com/romansock/step-by-step-broomstick-l.html

My heating has broken down so I have been crocheting to keep warm...

This is the result

a rough description

Broomstick Lace Instructions

Multiples of 4 stitches

Chain however many you want (Multiple of 4)

(Using a turning chain to retain same number of stitches on each row)

2 rows of single crochet

*Chain 1, Draw the loop through until you have a loop of two to three centimeters (keep this loop on bar of hook)

Insert hook through next stitch, yarn over and draw loop up to the same height as the first (Now you should have two loops on bar of hook)

Do this for each stitch

You should have one loop for each stitch.

Turn (Remove hook from all your loops - there should be one for each stitch - 60 for my one)

Put hook through the first 4 loops, then single crochet around all 4 loops with 4 single crochet stitches, do the same for each consecutive set of four stitches.

Chain 1 ( a turning chain) Single crochet the next row.

Repeat from * until you are finished.

( I learned from 300 crochet stitches - but this is my interpretation)

I have added a slightly longer tute on my blog

Wow! I haven't seen much broomstick lace for years, but your scarf is so lovely it may spark a revival - I must go hunt down my "broomstick" now!
Thanks for sharing!

that's awesome!  how do you turn it after pulling up all of the loops?  do you take all of the loops off of the hook?

also, if you don't mind telling, how many chains did you start with an what size hook did you use?

Il y a un monstre dans le lac, et il s'appelle Jean-Claude.
Mon ami le monstre sort du lac quand l'eau est trop chaude.
Le monstre vient au Lac du Bois pour jouer de la guitare.
Il aime bien manger les villageois et les monos bizarres. RAAAARAH!

This is gorgeous. I've only seen a couple small things on how to do broomstick lace. Fantastic, it looks impressive, but isn't ornate.
