From Crochet at About.com: Thistle Flower Filet Crochet Chart

This Thistle Chart is the same finished size as a co-ordinating Rose chart and an Iris chart, which you could do as a wall grouping.

Working the Chart in Filet Crochet:
For a 4 dc mesh, total starting chain is 97 chains - that's a starting chain of 94, 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.

Increasing in Filet Crochet:
