This wrap is perfect for cool spring and summer evenings. Made with either size 10 cotton thread or shimmery rayon thread (as pictured). Broomstick lace loops of two different sizes creates an interesting texture and look.

The instructions call for 2 wooden dowels - 1/2” and 5/8” diameter. These can be picked up for a very low cost in the wood working area of any craft store (I used the 12” dowels that came in multi-packs). You will want to sand the dowels lightly and if you wish you can taper the end of each to make it easier to take the loops on and off (although it’s not necessary).

This pattern is rated at experienced. It is best if you are already comfortable working with broomstick lace and working in thread.
