Introduction: Filet Crochet Name Doily
#10 crochet thread (white or ecru work best but you can use any color)
Size #7 crochet hook
Alphabet pattern (there are loads of alphabet patterns free on the internet)
Ch(s) – Chain(s)
dc - Double Crochet (US term, outside the US it is called tc, triple crochet)
Rows 4 etc: read the pattern for the next row from the bottom up, filling any square with an X with 2 dc, and any empty squares with ch2. Each square consists of 3 stitches. The first dc stitch for that square and then 2 more stitches, to either fill or leave open the square. The first dc of the next square also serves as the last dc of the previous square. Because of the size of each letter, not every letter takes the same number of rows to create, (compare I and W).
When you have completed the first letter, the next two rows will be repeats of row #2.
Once one end is done, tie off and weave in the thread end.

Thank for sharing, your work is beautiful
Do you any other suggestions on where to fine a "printed copy" of Your Name & More? Amazon is out of stock and may not get it instock. All I have been able to find are digital download and I have no to print nor do I know anyone with a printer. Any assistance you can give will be greatly appreciated.
I really don't know how to help you on this. I have my Mother's copy of this book. Maybe you have a friend, neighbor or relative who would be able down load and copy this book for you. I usually go to my daughter for computer help. Hope this helps.
Can you explain how to start crocheting on the second end, like how to attach more thread and get started? I'm new to this and having so much fun with it!
The end you are starting on has the back side of the original chain, so just put the hook in the first back loop of the chain draw the thread through, hook the thread and the tail together (as if it were 1 thread) and chain 3. Now the tail is tied into the first dc, dc the next 3 stitches and follow the open box pattern across. Then follow the pattern. Hope that helps.
