In the nineteenth century, crochet was largerly used to imitate traditional lace techniques, such as bobbin lace. One famous type of bobbin lace came from Bruges/Bregge, Belgium, and crochet de Bruges was developed to imitate it. The simple, ribbonlike technique is well worth exploring with materials other than thin, white cotton thread.
