In Filet Crochet chains and double crochets are used to create a grid, and double crochets are used to fill the grid spaces to create the pattern. I was first introduced to it by my mother who created a name doily for me for Christmas. My children each wanted one, but my mom had made so many that she said she wouldn’t do any more. So I learned how to make the name doilies using Filet Crochet. So far I have made over 50 of these doilies and given them as gifts. The one I made in this Instructable was for the bridal shower of my nephew’s fiancé. (They are now married) Everyone who sees one expresses disbelief that I had made it. They don’t know me very well, do they? So I know that I can make one of these and get a positive response. (FYI- it will take +/- 1 hour to make a letter, and an hour to make each end, so 7 hours for this doily.) Here we go on how to make a Filet Crochet Name Doily.
