Bruges Lace was totally knew to me and although I knew it was a form of crochet I didn't know anything else about it. Ellen's introduction explains that that Bruges lace is a variation on bobbin lace that originated in Brugge, Belgium. She goes on to give an excellent description of what Bruges Lace is. More importantly, she provides you with easy-to-understand instructions for learning this technique in crochet.

In fact, Ellen makes it really easy to learn the techniques by including options for every learning style:

- Clear text description. Since I'm a wordy girl, I apprecated this. There are notes that add helpful information to the basic pattern instructions.
- Photos. They are large and clear. Great for visual crafters!
- Stitch diagram. If you like working from symbol charts then you won't be disappointed because these are included as well.

Once you learn the basics, you've got eight different patterns to work in this book and they are varied in terms of what they are (not all just scarfs, for example) so you get a lot of bang for your buck. Recommended!

This is a great book to learn a new technique - Bruges Lace. It's basically crochet in a special way that is so easy to learn and really adds some nice design techniques to your everyday items. I have had many books and patterns by Ellen Gormley and all of her materials are well written, easy to follow and usually diagrammed. Best of all, she is easily reachable via her Ravelry Group and will answer questions as quickly as possible.

If you want to learn the Bruges Lace crochet technique, this is the book to get! Start with a simple bracelet and work your way up to a more advanced afghan. Patterns in words and charts are great for all skill levels.

I got this fabulous book this week... I was a tad worried that I might find it hard to understand & actually do, as written patterns are not always my strong point but wanted to give it my best shot... Well I'm pleased that I bought this book by Ellen Gormley.. she has designed this book in such a fashion I'm sure the very beginner crocheter will be able to do Bruges lace in not time at all. Plus it not only has written patterns but also charted patterns... Thank You Ellen for de-mystifying this complicated looking crochet in such easy to understand steps... Not only has Ellen explained the different steps to doing the basic Bruges lace but she has also fully explained in plain language how to increase, decrease, do it in the round, in spiral, in swirls & waves... There are a few patterns for different projects so you get a full coverage of how to make this lace work so you will be able to use it in your own designs... Thank You Ellen, this is a pearler of a reference book for me... <3 Learn Bruges Lace
