I had been wanting to do this project for quite some time. The original pattern is written for the use of thread. But, since I really don’t like working with thread, I decided to use worsted weight yarn instead. I was also thinking that it would end up being a good size to use as a curtain in one of my bathrooms. Well, it ended up being much too long for the window, but it will do for now.
Filet crochet is essentially a DC mesh with blocks of DC creating the picture. It is easy to do and, I must say, quite fun. This is my first filet project and I am quite pleased with how it turned out. Well, besides it being too big for the window.
This is the only photo I took, so it’s hard to tell how big it is. That is my 55mm lens cap sitting in the bottom left. This would almost make a good lap blanket for me. It covers my legs.
It’s worth noting how much yarn this took. I used Red Heart Super Saver for the entire project. The filet portion took one full skein and part of a second. The ruffle took the rest of the second skein and part of a third. Definitely a yarn eater.
