Holy Mother Filet Shawl
designed by Kim Guzman © Mar. 2015
Technique: Regular Crochet
- Size 3.5mm [E-4] crochet hook
- Approximately 1800 yds Patons Grace (136 yds per 50g)
- Yarn needle (for weaving ends)
- 12″ x 3″ piece of cardboard (for fringe)
approx. 80″ across by 40″ high (excluding fringe)
In stitch pattern, 21 sts and 10 rows = 4″.
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.
Shawl is worked from top to bottom. You will be working from the chart from the widest point to the smallest point. Print the charts and tape them together then you’ll turn it upside down to begin working. Note that the charts will be slightly overlapped and the numbers on the charts will account for this.
Row 1: Ch 403, dc in 7th ch from hook (counts as first open mesh), *ch 1, sk 1 ch, dc in next ch, rep from * across, turn–199 open meshes.
Following the diagrams (two included) and the Filet Stitch Key, continue until all rows are completed. Fasten off. Weave in all ends securely.
Fringe Using cardboard piece, wrap yarn around to make as many 12″ pieces of Patons Grace as necessary. Attach two piece of cut yarn in each open mesh of first and last rows. Trim fringe as necessary.
Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
