Simply Collectible | Broomstick Lace Baby Blanket #crochet pattern and tutorial

Start by reading over this simple how to broomstick lace baby blanket photo tutorial. It is much easier than you think.

How difficult is Broomstick Lace Stitch?

To start, if you can yarn over, pull up a loop and single crochet, you can make a scarf, a baby blanket, an afghan or whatever your imagination leads you to.

What do I need to make Broomstick Lace stitch?

*  A crochet hook – Whatever hook the yarn you chose calls for… go up one or two sizes.
*  Yarn
*  “Broomstick”  — The hunt to see what else was available other than knitting needles, rough broomsticks and pvc pipe proved fruitful. Wooden dowels will be an excellent addition to your supplies IF, and only if, you purchase them already sanded down like the ones I found at a local craft store.

Here is what I used:

*  3/4 ” pvc pipe (the measurement of the opening, not the width), large knitting needle or a ruler
*  H / 5.00mm hook
*  Baby Bee’s (Hobby Lobby), Meema’s Blue (3 balls)
*  Scissors
*   Yarn Needle

In this pattern, “broomstick” will refer to whatever tool you use to make your loops.


*  ch – chain
*  sc – single crochet
*  yo – yarn over


How to Broomstick Lace Baby Blanket Photo Tutorial & Instructions for other Rectangular Works:  This tutorial requires you work in multiples of 5. My friend Pam, who encouraged me to try this stitch, works her prayer shawls in multiples of 4 for a more subtle appearance. Both of these are ones she made and they look so soft.

 R1:  ch130, loop the last chain onto broomstick.

Start with the next chain, insert hook under back bump and pull up a loop- like you have flipped your chain over- not under both loops. Slide that loop onto your “broomstick”.

NOTE:  My previous photo does NOT show this as the back hump as I didn’t realize, until I had completed the blanket, it was a detail I appreciated. Though I didn’t get a photo of it, you may use any single loop to get a similar effect. The idea is the edge look like the completed end, but this is not crucial.

Pull up a loop for each chain- 130 loops on broomstick- loose enough to fit hook between loops and broomstick. (Some yarns are too slick to remove from the broomstick without the stitches sliding, but most can be worked off the broomstick just fine.)

 Yarn is behind broomstick, insert hook under first 5 loops, yo, pull up a loop, ch2, 5sc in 1st 5 loops.

 NOTE:  The first full broomstick lace stitch of every row is the only one with 6 stitches- in this pattern. All others will have 5sc each. Stitches should be loose enough they don’t cinch the yarn. You want those loops to straighten out once your project is completed.

Remove first broomstick lace stitch from hook, do not chain at the end of the stitch.

 *Insert hook through next 5 loops, yo, pull up loop, ch2, 4sc in loops* (repeating * to * in every 5 loops to end.) Remove loops as you go or remove all loops and stitch up loops in your lap or on a table. If your yarn isn’t slick, the loops aren’t going anywhere. Do not turn your work. Do not chain at the end of the row. When ending the last sc of the row, pull up and slide it onto the broomstick.

NOTE: If you do not have 130 loops, you may fib it by crocheting together more or less loops. You do not have to pull your work out. There were at least 3 rows in my blanket that were only 4 loops instead of 5. As long as you have 130 loops on your broomstick the next time around, it will look gorgeous.

 R2-28: (again – end of  R1: do not ch1) slide loop onto broomstick repeating method from the beginning, starting with pulling up your loops on your broomstick

Continue broomstick lace stitch across repeating R1.

Fasten off. Sew in the tails, weaving back and forth, up and down.
