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
