RIBBONS

Welcome to another exciting week of Bruges Lace, I am always happy to meet with you and discuss crochet at leisure.

The foundation for this beautiful lace is the Ribbon:Bruges crochet ribbons

These are not hard to do,  all you need is counting skills and how to do the double crochet stitch which is really easy.
I am going to use my vast reserves of size #10 thread, this size is not too fine or too thick, it is perfect for anyone who wants to start to crochet. And I believe it will give a nice looking Bruges Lace doily.
So if you decide to come along on this Road Trip please start by making this ribbon. For now you need to make only a 12 inch strip, to get the feel of the project.
You can use any hook size just keep in mind that the smaller the hook the smaller the final size of your doily.
For size #10 thread I like to use anywhere from 4 to 7.
On the other hand if the hook is too big then your stitches will be loose looking and not very pretty. Crochet stitches look best when they are tight and even in tension.
Pinterest is the place to go if you want to get inmersed in Bruges Lace and You tube for the visual tutorials.
So this is all for today, hope to see you tomorrow for more on Bruges….
