Introduction: Little Baby Filet Crochet Set

About: Catalog librarian Knit/crochet designer Blog: http://www.designsbykn.com/blog/

Hot off the hook! This preemie set in the filet crochet technique measures approx. 17-1/2" w. x 18-1/2" h., with a hat circumference of 14". The sample is shown in a soft worsted weight, using a size H hook. Inspiration for my original design came from an old book of charts for needlepoint backgrounds--perfect for interpreting in filet crochet! The understated contrast edging is a combination of double and single crochet stitches, lending a finishing touch while framing the beauty of the boxed filet pattern, worked in double crochet throughout.  Free pattern here

    Thanks. I love filet crochet. Charted designs like this made in yarn (rather than thread) work up so fast!

    Cool, you're posting a lot of stuff, keep it up, it's great!
