INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE

The shawl includes rows of Broomstick (Jiffy) lace. There are two steps in working Broomstick lace. First, loops of stitches are extended and placed on a large knitting needle (the broomstick). Next the loops are worked off the needle with single crochet.

 

HELPFUL

In Broomstick lace, there are many different ways to hold the large knitting needle. Experiment with different grips and placement of the large knitting needle to find a position that works for you.
