The pattern for this Bruges lace napkin ring is really elegant. I would not call this an easy pattern because of all of steps to completion but for the person that values place setting a set of these would be greatly appreciated. These remind of the Victorian era and would dress up a place setting.

My mother would set the table for holiday dinners and she always used napkin rings. I never took up the habit but seeing these reminded me of all of the special dinners we had when I was growing up. There is something to be said about tradition. She would have loved these lacy napkin rings.

Yet another pattern I haven't tried. I seem to be learning new stitches and patterns frequently at this site. And that says a lot since I have been crocheting for 50 years. This is very pretty and I want to give it a go . Done in white or cream, they would go with any color napkin.

I looked at this project because I thought I might make some for wedding favors. After reading through it, I decided against making these en masse. However, I was still glad I went to the link because of the excellent video tutorial on Bruges Lace. It looks very similar to some tatting patterns Ive worked up. Glad for this find, even though I probably wont be making the above project.
