Early mornings around the house, days out and about and evenings in the yard – Witchlace is a sweater that embodies all of these moments. It’s both simple and feminine, pretty yet casual; reclaiming an old technique, broomstick lace, in a more modern way. The front, sleeves and back are worked while alternating rows of DC or HDC with single crochet. A textured ribbed effect is produced by working the stitches through the back loops. All four pieces are worked flat, blocked and seamed, then the yoke is picked up from each of the pieces and worked. Finally, the broomstick lace is started in the round and alternates with rows of single crochet (worked through both loops) up to the neckline.
