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 20mm or 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 20mm and 22mm diameters (the latter more suitable for chunky and heavier yarns) and are hand turned from welsh beech or sycamore.
