About the Yarn
The yarn used for this project has been discontinued for many years. Any worsted or aran weight yarn will work. Use a natural fiber, if you would like to block out your drop stitches for an especially lovely project.
Gauge is not critical for this project.
15″ x 58″
This project is worked in typical broomstick lace method, without the lacets. If you prefer to work in Drop Stitch Crochet, as developed in this book, it will work just as well.
You can find a video for this technique on my YouTube channel here, in both right- and left-handed versions. The video below is in Drop Stitch Crochet which isn’t exactly the same as the original pattern. But, it may be useful to those making the project.
