Filet Crochet

Not to date myself or anything, but many many moons ago (that sounds better than years) I made filet doilies with my mother. I read somewhere recently that doilies are making a come back.  Shocking, I know!   I'm sure that the instructions came out of a crochet magazine from many many moons ago, but I have no idea which one.  I only have a copy, given to my by my mother. 

This is an example of the letters we created on graph paper. 


  1. Just found your blog and you make such wonderful things! I will be returning soon to read your entire blog from top to bottom.
