Broomstick Crochet also known as broomstick lace or peacock eye crochet, as its name implies, was originally worked using a broomstick handle. Using this technique the yarn is worked with a large knitting type needle and a crochet hook. The basic stitch is easy to learn and the fabric is produced quickly and easily. The lacy fabric produced is very economical with yarn and is ideal for a range of garments including scarfs, shawls, waistcoats, lightweight tops, cushion covers, trims and edgings etc..

This kit contains everything you need to get started and includes:
a 22mmx 330mm hand turned 'king pin' (broomstick pin)
a 4mm or 5mm bamboo crochet hook
50g of 'INDULGENCE 6ply with Silk' yarn ( 55% merino wool, 20% silk, 25% polyamide)
Full instructions and pattern for a basic scarf and lacy cap.

The 'king pin' is available in  22mm - 28mm diameters (the latter more suitable for chunky and heavier yarns) and are hand turned from welsh beech, oak or sycamore.
