Traditional filet crochet designs are most often seen worked in rows using treble crochet and chain stitches to create a mesh-like grid, and by filling the spaces with more treble stitches an array of interesting patterns can be produced. However, the same idea can just as easily be applied to circular motifs, using densely placed treble stitches and increases separated by that familiar open mesh work as can be seen on my Filet Daisy Potholder. It is worked in two layers and the petals of the daisy motif are aligned with joining double crochet stitches to maximise the beautiful filet effect.

The pattern is written using standard UK terms and includes clear charts for each section of the potholder - the back and front panels and the edging.
