This broomstick lace ruffled scarf is a stylish scarf that will go with just about any outfit. The scarf pattern is very easy to follow, and allows for mindless crocheting. All you do is increase the amount of stitches in each row, and then for the last row, a very simple edging is done.
Broomstick lace is very simple to do, but you should know the basics of crocheting before attempting the stitch. Broomstick lace crochet consists of 2 types of rows; a crochet row and a loop row, and both are worked from the same side.

Hook Size: H/8-5.00MM
Circular Knitting Needle Size: 20MM
