Tape lace crochet is one of the most popular, interesting and unusual topics in crocheting. The title of itself says that the projects in this technique are assembled from crocheted tapes. Crochet tapes (ribbons) come in different shapes and lengths. Very often the form of a crocheted tape depends on the motive that was taken as a basic motif which can be any shape: round, square, triangular, hexagonal or oval. In tape lace crochet each motif is a part of that first basic motif and is called a partial motif of the tape. For example you can begin the crochet tape with square motif and continue working in rows repeating only a part (a half or a quarter) of that basic motif. Crocheted tapes can be very wide or narrow, symmetrical or asymmetrical. You can make one-side tape or two-side tapes, which is very important if you are going to join them together to create a larger piece of work.
Crochet tape lace projects look very elegant and interesting made as in one color, two colors or in many colors. In this technique you can create any piece of clothes or home decoration. You can combine pieces made in crochet lace tape technique with other techniques, for example, Irish lace crochet and Guipure crochet. This will make your hand made projects unique. Also you can use crochet tape as a border, edging. Models decorated with tape/ribbon lace look elegant and feminine.
