Important Notes:

  • No matter your skill level, I always suggest that you read through the pattern from beginning to end before beginning your work just to be sure you don’t have any questions that might cause frustration in the midst of your project.
  • If you’re new to filet crochet, find a full tutorial of how to read the written and charted patterns, along with a video tutorial for creating your first swatch, in my post, “How to Filet Crochet for Beginners.”
  • Normally, the initial CH-3 at the beginning of each row is not included in the filet chart, it is always assumed. However, I’ve added it hear for your convenience so you can become accustomed to the rhythm of filet crochet.
