At first glance it may look hard, but if you are familiar with broomstick lace crochet then you will find this a breeze to follow. Plus, it allows for mindless crocheting once you get going. The scarf is worked lengthwise with an increase in stitches in each row. 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. Click here for a tutorial on how to do broomstick lace crochet.
