Special Stitches

Filet Crochet

Filet crochet is made up of two simple stitches: the chain and double crochet. The double crochet stitches are worked in groups to form a solid block and the space between each block is enclosed by a length of chain, which matches the number of double crochet (or chs/sts) over which it is worked.

Filet Crochet Charts

The charts for this pattern are worked back and forth in rows.

Odd numbers are worked from right to left and even numbered rows are worked from left to right (if right-handed).

Basic Filet Stitches

Open block: Ch 1, sk next st, dc in next st.

Block (Bl): Dc in next 2 sts.

Pattern Notes

Ch 3 counts as first dc st.

If a Bl is over a ch-sp, work dc in ch-sp
