Marian’s Riding Hood – a Long Sleeved Cowl

This site contains affiliate links, if you purchase something I may be compensated.  Which means more FREE Patterns for you!

So as many of you know my stitch of choice (ok, it might border on obsession) is Broomstick Lace. So, I am really excited to share this latest pattern with you; a long sleeved cowl.

The whole process of figuring out how to join the long sleeves together in the easiest possible way kept me awake at night, as I worked it over and over in my head.  Then, surprisingly after just a few attempts, I managed to get what was happening in my brain to transfer to the hook and yarn. (I think I may have actually done a bit of a happy dance)

Modern Red Riding's Hood - KatiDCreations

What do I love about this completed item? – I love how the over sized hooded cowl fully extends over the face, – I love that a portion of the cowl that extends down to the top 3rd of the torso and is so warm, – I love that it is light weight and is a perfect piece of outerwear to use in place of that bulky coat

This stunning project is worked using Cascade Alpaca Lana D’Oro which is so warm!  and is be perfect for those days when its kind of warm but still a cold breeze that would normally have you reaching for a jacket!

The construction of this top it is worked in the round, which means that you don’t have any seams to sew together….which is so nice!  Also the way the armpit area is worked, allows for free range of movement without worrying about it being to tight.

Please don’t let the size of this project over whelm you!  It works up quicker than you may think, and you will be so happy when you finish it!

Ok so on with the Marian’s Riding Hood

Special Notes:
1. You will make 2 of the Cuff/Sleeve combinations; do not finish off until instructed to do so

2. I work the entire pattern in the Back Loop (with the exception of joining which is done in both loops). I do this because I love the little extra detail that it gives.

3. This pattern is easily adjustable to fist most any size. This pattern is worked in multiples of 4, so if you need to increase/decrease the cuff you do so by multiples of 4.  If you need to increase/decrease the front/back part (Shoulder R1), you will increase/decrease the number of CHs worked by 4.  You will then simply follow the directions as written, just remember that your total stitch count/sets of Broomstick lace will be different from what is written.

4. If you find that you are a loop short/over it is not necessary to rip out the row and start over. just make sure that your total number of SC stitches worked is correct.

5. I recommend trying on sleeves as you go. You may find that you need to increase/decrease the number of rows worked.

If you want your cowl shorter/longer simply increase or decrease the number of rows you complete.

Broomstick Lace in a Round Tutorial

This site contains Affiliates Ads, I may be compensated for any purchases made….which means more free patterns for you!!!

Broomstick lace is a rather simple stitch to accomplish, but it does take a bit of time to get the hang of.  Once you have a good understanding of the Broomstick Lace stitch, you should try out this tutorial for working Broomstick Lace in a round.  It will open your world up to a whole new set of patterns!

You can check out the Photo Tutorial for regular Broomstick Lace HERE.

As mentioned there are several different ways to accomplish this stitch.  I chose to simply let my loops hang there, but it would not be difficult to gather the loops and put a stitch marker to help keep them safe.  I don’t recommend using belting as it does cause a great deal of fuzz and is very time consuming taking the loops off because of the texture of the belting

So there you have it. There is not much more to Broomstick Lace being worked in the round v. working in regular rows

Hopefully you find this tutorial helpful.

Unforgettable Broomstick Lace Shawl

This was my first time working with Red Hearts Unforgettable yarn, and it will not be my last!  It is so soft, beautiful and I L O V E the way the variegated yarn so slowly changes colors!  There is such a loose twist in the yarn that it almost has an ‘eye lash’ look.  I love the way the finished product looks and cant wait to start my next using this yarn! Broomstick Lace Shawl
I am calling this a Shawl instead of a Scarf because of the width of the item.  That being said, this is one of those patterns that you can modify with no problem; so, if you would prefer a narrower finished project simply start out by doing fewer chains.

Well it seems I can’t get enough of the Broomstick Lace stitch!  I love it!  Granted it does take a bit of practice to get the hang of it, but I love the finished look.  So with all the craze with Ponchos right now I figured I would challenge myself a bit and try my hand at a Broomstick Lace Poncho!  What do you think?  I think it turned out really well.

Joining Circle - Not in the Base ChainIf you have issues joining the Chain and it twisting you can check out THIS tutorial for an alternative way.

Special Notes: This pattern is worked in series of 16 stitches. If you want to make the initial cowl larger or smaller you will need to increase/decrease by 16 CH.
When making the Broomstick Lace rows, the part when you are taking the loops off of the hook, you will increase each row by 16 stitches (4 additional Broomsticks)

Cowl

CH63 + CH2 – (CH2 will count as first DC) – this is the size shown!  If I were to make myself one I would use the same start for the cowl as shown

Row 1: DC in 3rd CH from hook, DC in each stitch around, Join with SLST in first DC (64DC)
Row 2: CH1, FPHDC in first stitch (CH2), BPHDC in next, *FPHDC, BPHDC*, repeat from *to* around. Join with SLST in first FPHDC (64HDC)
Row 3: Repeat row 2 until you get desired height for the cowl

Join the tail of your first CH to the last CH.
Marie Louise PonchoPoncho
(I changed colors from grey to pink at this point)
Row 1: CH1, FPHDC in same as joining and in each stitch around. Join with SLST in first FPHDC
Row 2: CH1, HDC in same as joining and in next 2 stitches, work 2 HDC in next stitch, *HDC in each of the next 3 stitches, work 2HDC in next*, repeat from *to* around (80 HDC) – your stitch count has increased by 16 🙂

Option – You can continue to work rows to make it larger over the shoulders before you start the Broomstick lace. Right now there are 80 stitches. This is the formula is – 80/16 = 5 (96) which means you will work 1 stitch in next 4 stitches, and 2 stitches in 5th stitch. The next row would be 96/16 = 6 (112), work 1 stitch in the next 5 stitches and 2 in the 6th stitch.  Continue to repeat this increasing pattern until you get the size needed. I highly recommend doing this for larger sizes.  But of course if you have the option just try it on the person being made for and go from there!

IF you use the option, remember you are adding 16 additional stitches (4Broomstick stitches), so make sure when you move onto Row 4 you add an additional Broomstick stitch in each repeat.  Modified Row 4 – *take off 4 loops and work 4SC in loops*, repeat from *to* twice more, *take off 4 loops and work 6SC in loops , repeat from *to* once more, ^*take off 4 loops and work 4SC in loops*, repeat from *to* three more, *take off 4 loops and work 6SC in loops*, repeat from *to* once more^, repeat from ^ to^ twice more

Row 3: Pull up loops (you can pull up the loop using booth front and back loop or like shown just work in the back loop)
Row 4: Take off 4 loops, pull up a loop and CH1 and work 4SC in loops, *take off 4 loops and work 4SC in loops*, repeat from *to* once more, *take off 4 loops and work 6SC in loops , repeat from *to* once more, ^*take off 4 loops and work 4SC in loops*, repeat from *to* twice more, *take off 4 loops and work 6SC in loops*, repeat from *to* once more^, repeat from ^ to^ twice more.

Broomstick Lace Fingerless Gloves – In Memory of Ron

Broomstick Lace Fingerlss Gloves
I would like to start this post a little different and share a Poem I titled ‘The Man’ that I wrote to go with this pattern.  Now I am not one to write poetry, simply ask my High School English teacher Mrs. Butler.  But after I had finished the pattern I felt that there needed to be something explaining my deep sorrow that I still experience from the loss of my friend.  And even though Mr. Schacher is gone, I know his memory lives on in us whose life’s were touched by him.  (This is your fair warning…you may want a tissue)

In Memory of Mr. Schachner.

The Man and Kid

The Man who held Kid soon after birth. The Man who wiped away Kid’s tears. The Man who helped Kid learn how to swim. The Man who taught Kid how to ride a bike. The Man who watched Kid go down the bunny slope. The Man who played volleyball with Kid. The Man who pointed out (to the blind ref) when Kid was fouled. The Man who taught Kid how to drive. The Man who walked Kid to meet her husband. The Man who held his beautiful Grandchild. The Man who will be forever missed. The Man.

I first saw this beautiful Broomstick Lace Slouch hat  on Pintrest, so I followed the link in hopes of finding a pattern for this beautiful hat.  No dice.  Jessica had created this beautiful hat and like so many of us, did not write a pattern.  Sadly after searching her site it appears as if she has not posted anything since late 2010, hope she is doing well.
Broomstick Lace
I had been given some beautiful Cascade Venezia yarn and so I sat down with nothing but my yarn, hook and vague idea of how this hat would be accomplished.  (Did I mention that prior to this hat I had never attempted Broomstick Lace or even had an idea of how it was done)?!

I had attempted several different ways to accomplish the hat ranging from using belting to knitting needle with stitch markers and finally settled with using just the knitting needle.  I get into this a little bit more below.

This Pattern is intended for someone who is very comfortable with Broomstick Lace Crochet. This is not a tutorial for how to do Broomstick Lace. If you find you are having issues you can check out this Picture Tutorial by KatiDCreations or this Video Tutorial by KatiDCreations

*Note: When working the loops off the knitting needle you will insert hook into specified number of loops, and then remove the loops from the needle. The first set of each row you will CH1, for all other sets you will simply remove the loops from needle then go directly into the specified SC.

** If you find that you are short with the number of loops you need for the last broomstick it is not necessary to take it all out. Just make sure that you have the specified number of Broomsticks and SC.

There are different ways you could work taking the loops off.

  1. Use a belting (the stuff that you can make into belts) Pro – it’s very flexible you don’t have to worry about losing stitches. Con – I have never found a smooth belting (has always had a ribbed texture to it which will cause your thread to get a bit fuzzy
    Broomstick Lace
  2. Using a knitting needle or tubing of the correct size. Pro – its smooth so you don’t have to worry about it getting fuzzy. Con – they can’t be bent into a circle so you have to remove the loops from the needle/tubing.

If you chose to use option #2 for working off the loops you are faced with 2 additional options. A. Remove all the loops as needed, just let them hang there and then slide the most recent 4 or 5 loops back onto the needle. Repeat this process around. B. Repeat process (A) but instead of letting the loops hang there, place the loops in stitch markers to keep them safe (or if you have little children that might be interested in ‘helping ‘) and then as you work back to them you take them out of the stitch makers.Broomstick Lace

Finished size – 2year – 4 year/ about 17 inches in circumference
4years – Adult/ about 19 inches in circumference
There is about 2-3 inches of stretch to the finished hat

This hat is worked in a round; you will not turn after finishing the rows.
