This can be used as a small filet doily for a piece of furniture or it can be framed, given as a gift, ectetera. :) Hope you enjoy it! :)

Materials: Bedspread Weight cotton thread (size 10) or smaller if you prefer Steel Crochet Hook
Size 8 or 9 (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) Optional: picture frame with glass.

Note: This is a basic filet pattern. Spaces = ch 2, skip 2 sts, 1 dc in next st; Blocks = 3 dc in next 3 sts. Odd numbered rows are worked from right to left and even numbered rows are worked from left to right.

I like to do filet project starting at the bottom of a chart and working my way up to the top. Good luck! :)

To begin: Chain 80. Dc in 8th ch from hook. Continue with pattern following chart.

Edging: Sc around the entire perimeter making 3 sc in spaces and ends of rows, 1 sc in tops and bottoms of dc (top and bottom edges of piece where there are blocks) and 6 or 7 scs in corners. Fasten off and sew in ends. Spray with a little spray starch and lightly press or block as desired. :)

Here's a larger variation of this begin this variation, you need to chain 176 to begin. Do the same edging around piece as above.
