Also known as Jiffy Lace, broomstick lace is easier than it looks, probably the only time you'll use a crochet hook and a knitting needle, and does work up in a jiffy, making a beautiful crochet fabric to show off your pretty yarns. Here it showcases Knit Picks Glimmer in the "Glimmering Lace Handkerchief Vest", a classy topper and layering piece for just about any season.
It's made of 2 square panels joined at the top corners with metal rings, and features a cute ribbed hem edge and elegant draped neck. Aside from learning the broomstick lace technique, it's about as easy as a garment can be, with minimal seaming and no shaping at all. Front and back are the same, and offer lots of potential for personalizing your vest.
Pattern is written for sizes XS-2XL in standard American terms and includes a step-by-step photo tutorial for how to do the broomstick lace! Skill level: intermediate. Lots of photos included!
Pattern is available for instant download upon completion of purchase.

Your files will be available to download once payment is confirmed. Here's how.
I can reserve things for you upon request, but the reserve will automatically end in 7 days UNLESS you request a longer reservation. Several times someone has asked me to reserve something for them, then doesn't buy it and it is reserved for months without a purchase, so from now on the reserve will only last for 1 week unless you specifically request a longer reserve. I WILL notify you of this policy via convo, and send a reminder if the 7 days are up without a purchase.
I do not accept coupons (other than thank you coupons for returning customers) for custom orders.
Returns & exchanges
Returns are only accepted if the error is mine--(a wrong shoe size or something)--within 2 weeks of the purchase, so PLEASE check your measurements as an ill-fitting size cannot be returned. Return shipping cost will not be refunded.
Hopefully this answers your questions--if not, drop me a convo! I'd love to work with you.
