A fast, fitted crochet jacket designed to enhance the female silhouette. This broomstick lace jacket is worked from the top down in one piece so very little finishing is required. Options for two sleeve lengths are given, short and 3/4 length. A few crochet skills and you're on your way.
The pattern includes a quick tutorial for the broomstick lace technique, and more complete instructions are available on the Stitch Diva site. It is written for drapey DK weight yarn. The end result is a designer look you will hardly believe you made yourself!
