Broomstick Lace Crochet Book Review and Giveaway!

I am thrilled to bring you a review of a new crochet book by Stackpole Books,
"Broomstick Lace Crochet, A New Look at a Vintage Stitch" 

 I haven't done Broomstick Lace crochet for years now, but after seeing this beautiful book, I going to try it once again!


Broomstick lace is an old crochet technique that has been around for years. BUT, Donna has brought this vintage technique into the 21st century!

The book is FULL of projects that I want to try. There is such a variety of designs from all categories, so there is something for every crochet taste. 


Several of the projects are smaller, which would make them more quick to complete and easier for the beginner to Broomstick Lace.


The photographs in this book are large, colorful and beautiful!  There are pages and pages of technique photos, so a newbie will have no trouble figuring out how to do this stitch!


Each design contains separate NOTES that will help you to complete your project more easily.


This book uses a variety of weights of yarn, but because of the 'broomstick' larger crochet hook, they work up quickly.
With 20 designs in all, you are sure to find a project you want to try!

Donna has a few videos that can be accessed on her site, to will help you try broomstick lace.
