Брюггские кружева / Bruges lace crochet

Last friday I began to knit a new crochet doily in Bruges lace technique.

Bruges crocheted lace imitates of lace that originated in Belgium, which is done on the bobbins, - it's a special kind of decorative crochet. Bruges lace consists of the ribbons which form beautiful ornaments. These ribbons are united when crocheting by small chains out of the chain stitches, and they are decorated by the chains so that an exact copy of the bobbin laces is done.

I used white and ecru Polyester Sewing Thread #20 and 0.75mm hook. I crochet doily in parallel with embroidery, so it does not is progressing very quickly.

I love lavender!
At weekends I started stitch pot with lavender (BK242) from DMC.

I replace included in kit 28ct DMC light green linen by 36ct Edinburgh white linen from Zweigart. Linen was dying by black tea.

Happy stitch!
