This is absolutely beautiful! I have tried the broomstick lace stitch once before, but I do not remember how to do it. I will have to practice it, because I really want to make this beautiful scarf. It would make a great gift, or the perfect accessory any time. The color is amazing too!

Hi robyncouch, There's a print button at the top, right below the project name and byline. Clicking that will open your browser's print menu where you can print this pattern. You can also highlight the pattern text and right click and print. OR you can highlight the pattern text, and copy and paste it into a blank word document and print from there. :) Hope that helps!

I am starting to make this scarf right this minute! It is such a lovely pattern, I have just been taught how to do broomstick stitch and this gorgeous pattern is the perfect thing to practice it on. Now our teenage daughter wants one too in the exact color shown in the pattern so off I go to begin crocheting, lol!

I have a pair of knitting needles which I never use. I know how to knit but I prefer to crochet since I can finish a crochet project so much faster than knitting. Well, I am going to use my knitting needles later this year to create this scarf. I will post my project when it is done. Thanks for the pattern.

I just love this Turquoise Broomstick Scarf pattern! Broomstick lace is so cute when done right and looks beautiful! Such a easy pattern to follow and do. I have made a lot of these and have even made them wider for a infinity scarf by sewing the ends together that my daughter stoled. Thank you for this beautiful free pattern.

I don't think that's a pretty stitch at all for a scarf. It looks messy, like there are some mistakes and holes. And the pattern looks like a lot of trouble for the finished results.
