Materials: Bedspread Weight cotton thread (size 10) or smaller if you
prefer Steel Crochet Hook

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. Also, this filet pattern contains increases and decreases at the ends and beginnings of the rows.

To begin: chain 78
Row 1: Dc in 4th ch from hook and in each remaining ch across (25 blocks) At end of row, ch 3 and turn.
Row 2: Continue following pattern according to chart.
At the end of last row, re-attach thread along foundation ch (where you made your first row). After completing this, fasten off and lightly press with a little aerosol spray starch. Enjoy! :)
