Crochet Lace Tape Top

Crochet Lace Tape Asymmetrical Top - in progress

Finally my crochet lace tape project is back on the top of the to-do-list. I had this vision of it being an a-symmetrical top and it was sort of doing okay but in the end I just wasn't happy with how it was turning out.

I've been pondering this crochet project ever since. It took me a while but I've finally got a plan. I'm going to undo all the Bruges crochet that joins lace tape 1 to lace tape 2. And instead of making the original concept top, which I feel this yarn is too heavy for, I have another plan in place for it.

I am sure you will see quite a bit of this crochet lace tape project as it progresses.

Project started:

October 2015

Last worked on the project:

November 2015

Still to do:

  • frog the Bruges crochet 
  • make more lace tape
  • re-join using Bruges crochet into my new project idea

Update on Little Crochet Granny Square Throw

Two16 Crochet Granny Square Throw


Sorry to shout but I'm just so excited!

It's finished! It's FINISHED! It is finished. Okay, I'm done shouting for joy and doing my happy dance.

It took me approximately three winters to finish this project and I totally think it was worth it. 

First edging attempt

It took a few goes to get the edging right and then a few more goes to get the corners right as well, but I got there in the end. I nearly kept this smaller version of the edging but it just wasn't what I had envisaged.

Okay, so to be honest, it still needs to be washed and blocked but I'm not counting that. 'Tis finished!

Was there progress?

DONE! I finished it just before bed on Friday night.

Did I enjoy working on it?


Will I continue to work on it?

Well, I have to wash it and I suppose you might be interested in the pattern too?


 Finished! FINISHED. The end.


That's it for another week of #FinishItFriday. Have you finished something this week?

See previous Finish It Friday projects.


  1. AWESOME! (Sorry, I have to shout with you.) A big, huge CONGRATS to you for finishing the blanket!
    That lace tape does make a cute top; it's a shame the yarn is too heavy for the original design. I can't wait to see what your next plan for it will be!

  2. I love the border of the asymmetrical top.

  3. Love that Lace Tape! Looks like the perfect addition to Spring wardrobe over a dress or tank top.
