Daisies Filet Afghan
designed by Kim Guzman © Jun. 1999
Technique: Filet Crochet
- Size D/3/3.25m crochet hook
- Approximately 3750 yds Red Heart Lustersheen used in sample
- Yarn needle (for weaving ends)
approx. 46″ x 52″
A swatch worked in Open Mesh for 21 blocks across and 21 blocks high measures a 6″ square
Each solid square is equal to 3 dc. Each open square is equal to (1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc). The dc at the end of each square also counts as the first dc of the next square. For example, a solid square followed by an open square is 3 dc, ch 1, 1 dc. Solid squares count as “solid mesh” and open squares count as “open mesh”.
Tip: When finished with one ball/cone of yarn, attach the next ball/cone only at the beginning or ending of a row to aid in the weaving of the loose end.
Row 1: Ch 323, dc in fourth ch from hook and in each ch across, turn–321 dc.
Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as first dc on this and each remaining row), sk first st, dc in each remaining st across, turn–321 dc.
Row 3: Ch 2, sk first st, dc in each of next 4 sts, *ch 1, sk 1 st, dc in next st, rep from * to last 5 sts, dc in each of last 5 sts, turn.
Following the diagrams (two included) and the Filet Stitch Key, continue until all rows are completed. Fasten off. Weave in all ends securely.
