Filet Crochet to Wear
  This item has not been reviewed yet


If you thought filet crochet was just for doilies, think again – this collection of designs is a fresh new look at this traditional crochet technique.

Learn to filet crochet with this collection of 15 crochet patterns for filet crochet garments including sweaters, tanks, tee shirts, and cardigans. Filet crochet only uses two stitches in a grid formation – chain stitch and double crochet (if you're American), treble if you're in the UK.

This stitch combination creates a mesh-like fabric which is great for showing different motifs and patterns. Filet crochet was traditionally worked using perlé cotton thread and used to create delicate home décor projects like placemats, coasters, and tablecloths as well as curtains.

This fun collection takes it to another level by working it in thicker yarn and shows how impactful it can be when it's used for garments. There will be a wide range of motifs from abstract chevrons to recognizable motifs for hearts, honeycombs, and even Christmas trees, so you can make fun fashion pieces without worrying about complicated colorwork techniques.

The designs featured in this collection include sweaters and cardigans for the cooler months as well as lighter pieces including a tank top and tee shirts for warmer weather.

Author and crochet designer Lauren Willis, explains everything you need to know about how to work in filet crochet, including how to follow a chart to work the motifs, the stitches required, and other tips and tricks.

The 15 project patterns are written in US crochet terminology but there is information about the equivalent UK terms and other technical information such as yarn weights and hook sizes.

The size grading for all of the featured projects ranges from small adult (tween) up to another 10 sizes so the patterns are very size-inclusive. Why not make filet crochet fashion for all the family?
