Elegant Floral Filet Table Scarf
designed by Kim Guzman © Apr. 2014
Technique: Filet Crochet
- Size 10 crochet cotton, about 1300 yards
- Steel hook, size 8 [1.5mm]
- Thread Suggestion: Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Thread
22″ x 29″
20 dc worked for 10 rows equals 2″ 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.
