Bruges Lace is a type of bobbin lace that originated from the city of Bruges, Belgium. It's sometimes known as Brussels lace or Belgian lace. The lace was originally made using ribbons and tapes and had nothing in common with crochet lace, but over the years the technique was adapted for crochet.

This scarf is a good way to learn how to crochet basic Bruges Lace tape. The scarf consists of 7 Bruges tapes connected to one another as-you-crochet. The 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th tapes are made from yarn A. The 2nd, 4th and 6th tapes are made from yarn B. The scarf was decorated with a corkscrew fringe.
