I need some help figuring out which button set to use for the Broomstick  Lace Cowl, which is going to be Christmas gift for a middle-aged woman…

    My personal preference is the leather covered buttons. Classy and understated but the mismatch gives it a current, casual flair. I love it, is it an easy pattern? I have been trying to crochet a scarf for the very first time. I’m not very good at it so far. LOL

    Disregard my question, on closer inspection I can tell it’s not easy.


  6. It’s actually quite easy. It’s Broomstick Lace. One row is putting loops on a “broomstick” (dowel in my case), and then one row back doing crochet stitches (singles in this case) back along it.

    I really like the effect and will be making a more earthy toned one for myself.

    And the bonus is it’s fast.


  7. I will go with Zodiac! I’ll sew them on today and share photo’s of the FO. 🙂 Thanks guys!!
