Australian crochet designer Mary Card’s filet-crochet motifs are both distinctive and beautiful: the designs she created at the height of her popularity often feature art nouveau flowers, birds, and butterflies. This poppy design was originally intended to decorate a hand towel, and Laura Ricketts has adapted it into a sweet filet crochet café curtain.
