Just purchased a booklet with the most gorgeous chrocheted broomstick lace shawl pattern. One of the materials needed is a size 50 broomstick lace pin. I have never heard of such an item and was wondering what it is and what does it look like. I am sure any one of the KP sisters will help me out. The Leaflet I purchased is Leisure Arts #75267 and the shawl is on page 22. I bought LionBrand Homespun yarn. The color is called
Tudor. Can't wait to start this project.

Lion Brand has them for $11.99. They are marked 25mm. When I made broomstick lace, I used a dowel that I got from Home Depot for about $3. Cut it in half, and sand the end round and it worked just fine.

BoBeau, Thank you for the info. Will look into it. However, the pattern calls for a size 50 broomstick lace PIN which confuses me. DEE DEE

on Lion Brand site, size 50 needle is 25mm in diameter. 25 mm is same as 1 inch. Home Depot has dowels that diameter.

Some people use the word "Pin' for knitting needles.
Broomstick Pin #50 means a knitting needle size 50.
When you do Broomstick Lace you will need a 3rd hand so
I hold the needle between my knees.
Hope this helps and good luck.

It's just a big fat knitting needle.
Have used it many times for broom stick lace baby blankets.
They are beautiful and unlike any other baby blankets you might make.

I used a Susan Bates US 50 knitting needle with great results.
