This Broom-stick lace pattern is a very versatile pattern and extremely easy to modify for your desired yarn, size, available knitting needle size etc. I will first write up the basic pattern that I used, and then explain how it can be modified.
The Sideways Lace Scarf Pattern
1.5 Skeins Bernat Satin Yarn
Size H Crochet Hook
US 19 (15 mm) Knitting Needle
Approx Size: 72" length - width as desired
With crochet hook:
Row1: Sc in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain stitch (total 252 sc) do not turn
Row 2: Pull the loop that is on the hook onto your knitting needle, and working from left to right, * insert your hook into the back-loop of the next SC, yarn over, draw yarn through the loop and, being careful not to twist, place it on the knitting needle * repeat from * to end (252 loops on the needle)
Row 3: Without turning, insert crochet hook under the first 3 loops, yo & pull through the loops, pull loops off of needle, Ch 1, 3 sc into top of the 3 yarn loops * in next 3 loops on the needle, 3sc in each across * (252 sc with 84 broomstick motifs)
Repeat Rows 2 & 3 until you have reached desired width
Last Row: Turn, Sc in each st across and finish off
Optional: A fringe can be added to the ends if desired
Any type of yarn can be used, with the appropriate sized crochet hook for that yarn....with bulkier yarn I would decrease the chain, thinner yarn increase the chain so that you have the desired length in your chain.
A longer scarf needed? Increase your chain by groups of 3 (a group of 7 (21 ch) adds another 5 inches in length when using a H hook & worsted weight yarn)
A shorter scarf needed? Decrease your chain by groups of 3
Only have a Size 35 knitting needle:? I would suggest doing groups of 4 then, so make your starting chain 253, and increase or decrease by 4 to reach the desired length
Only have a Size 50 knitting needle? I would suggest using this with a group of 5, so increase your starting chain to 256, and increase or decrease by 5 to reach the desired length
Do not be scared to play around with needle sizes to achieve the desired Broomstick motif size
