So, another thing that I tried out in January was learning a new stitch, and using it on a boob-tube style slip that I purchased that just wouldn’t stay up (but that’s why it’s called a slip, right? Hur hur).
First things, the new stitch:
The stitch is commonly known as broomstick lace crochet, and there is a really good tutorial for it when you follow this link.
I didn’t have a big knitting needle, but I did have a recorder. So…
I used chain stitch around the top of the slip. This was a platform to build my broomstick lace stitches on to.
Then I completed the actual stitches:
After finishing the two long strands of broomstick lace crochet, it was a simple matter of hand sewing the other end of the lace down in the right position to create the strap.
I was very fortunate to find a wool in such a similar colour.
