Decorative Filet (Crochet...Gotta Love It!)

This is a test page...I was playing around with a pattern I found on a site in Kiev Russia, but the pattern was typed out in x's periods and forward slashes. So, I was able to figure out where the spaces and blocks were supposed to go, but if you look at it on the kiev site (see below link), it looks as if there is some pretty fancy stitching in it. I just graphed it out as "basic filet". Here's the site I found this pattern at, but sadly, the site is no longer on the 'Net as of November 1998: http://sprat.gu.kiev.ua/H/CR/CROCHET.8

Thus, this is what the graph translates to: Spaces = ch 2, 1 dc; Blocks = 3 dc. Good luck! :)
Here's a little something neat to do.....just drag your mouse over a color and watch the background on this page.....neat. :)

You are at http://members.tripod.com/~lhamm/d-filet1.htm

Materials: Bedspread Weight cotton thread (size 10) or smaller if you prefer Steel Crochet Hook
Size 5 (or the size you prefer when using size 10 thread. If using size 20 or 30 thread, be sure to
adjust your hook size accordingly)
I think this pattern may have had some fancy filet stitches in it such as "lacet stitches", but I've never done that kind of filet and thus, I didn't know how to incorporate it into this chart. Also, it looks like it's a shaped filet which has increases and decreases at the beginnings and ends of the rows....that's something else I need to learn to do. :) **update**Click hereto find instructions on increasing and decreasing filet crochet.
