How To Crochet: Broomstick Lace You can use a very large knitting needle for bigger loops and you can create different rows with different size stitches. The only stitch that you need to know is single crochet, can you believe it? For this tutorial, I used my favorite crochet thread in size 3 with a size C crochet hook and a size 17 knitting needle. The usual grouping of stitches is 4 to 6. Your initial chain will vary in length depending on how many groups of stitches you want to make. Chain 20. Insert crochet hook into each chain, yarn over and bring the loop up onto the knitting needle. You should now have 20 loops on your knitting needle. In groups of 5, gather the stitches off the knitting needle. Now begin to draw up your working yarn and chain 1 to close the group. Now make 5 single crochets in the space for the gathered stitches. Continue across row gathering 5 stitches, and making 5 single crochets in each group. Now 4 groups of 5 stitches made. Hook a loop onto your knitting needle at the working end of your row.
