I have wanted to learn to crochet Bruges lace for the longest time and now that I found this beautiful pattern booklet by Annie’s Crochet, I was able to make my first ever Bruges lace project. The patterns are designed by Ellen Gormley and I got my booklet from Amazon:
I chose to make the first project in the book and I crocheted the Pea Pod scarf. The pattern is marked as intermediate skill level, but I have to say that the pattern notes and diagrams were so helpful, I finished my scarf in one evening, although I have never tried Bruges lace before.
I’m very happy with my first Bruges lace scarf and I’m excited to share it with you. I might even start selling it on Etsy as it would make a pretty gift for upcoming Mother’s Day.
I recommend this booklet because it’s a perfect tool if you’re interested in learning to crochet Bruges lace. It talks about where the Bruges lace originates from. And mainly, there are many helpful tips and illustrations for different types of Bruges lace stitches that are mostly called tapes, arches, circles and waves.
For my scarf I used Lion Brand Coboo yarn which is the mix of cotton and bamboo. I’ve used this yarn now for my cable stitch pillow and Whispering Pines hat and I find it absolutely beautiful.
It’s very soft and smooth, yet the scarf holds its shape nicely, especially after blocking.
My Amazon picks:
So if you’re like me and enjoy learning new crochet techniques, then I suggest you pick up this crochet booklet, get some Lion Brand Coboo yarn and make your own Bruges lace scarf. Helpful tip: I used crochet hook size 4.5 mm.
The book contains a beautiful throw pattern which is why I bought it at the first place. So once I’m finished with that, I will be most happy to share it with you! Stay tuned!
