I charted this eagle design two ways: with lacets and without lacets.

I recharted and adapted from the original. -- Sandi Marshall
The designs on this page are based on a chart from Corticelli Lessons in Crochet, No. 9, published in the year 1920.

Working the Chart in Filet Crochet
Starting Chain is the same for both charts: For a 4 dc mesh, starting chain is 79, plus chain 3, (which will count as first dc of first row). Begin by working a double crochet in the 5th chain from the hook.

Follow chart for placement of solid mesh and open mesh for each row. For a refresher on how to do filet crochet, see Basics link below.

Chart is worked starting at the bottom right; work first row right to left. Second row is worked left to right. Continue alternating row directions in this same manner, following chart.
