I started out just making a vertical stripe scarf. However, I quickly decided that would be a bit boring with only the two colors. My solution? Adding in the loops for something a little more visually interesting. It was my first time with Broomstick Lace- I used a size 15 knitting needle for the 2 small rows in Denim, and a 7/8" wooden dowel for the two large rows of Charcoal.
