This is a filet crochet pattern, where the design is made up by making chain-space stitches. Because of this, the easiest way to demonstrate this pattern is using a chart.

I know not everyone likes reading charts (trust me, this one is super simple though!!) and so I’ve also included written instructions for each row.

Suggested Yarn: This pattern has been designed for use with one ball of Scheepjes Whirl. It’s a 4ply fingering weight yarn so substituting with any similar yarn should work!

Finished Size:158cm wide by 46cm deep (blocked)

Gauge: 21.5 stitches per 10cm and 12 rows per 10 cm (pre-blocking) using treble crochet stitches.

If you are using Scheepjes Whirl, gauge is fairly important, it is designed to use one ball and to get the full effect of the colour transition, it uses pretty much the whole ball (you might have a little bit left over).

Suitable for: Anyone with experience of making chain and treble crochet stitches. I’ve tried my best to explain the stages as simply as possible!

I’ve also included some hints and tips on my blog to help. You can find those here! :)
