Peacock Plumes Cowl (Crochet) - by Megan Parrish - from Twisted Pattern Line

I always thought broomstick lace was going to be something really hard and confusing. How else would one make a pretty stitch that looks like the long fanned plumes of a peacock? While it does feel a little out of control when you are crocheting into those big loops of yarn, it can be a lot of fun, and has a beautiful result. Try your hand at this cool crochet stitch - you might even get crazy and use a dowel, a broomstick, or some other everyday item as a one-of-a-kind crochet tool.
