Vintage and Contemporary Filet Crochet Patterns for Everyone


Filet crochet is a lovely technique that makes use of double crochet and chain stitches (and sometimes lacets or other stitches) to create open meshes and filled-in blocks. You can arrange these elements to create intricate pictorial designs featuring flowers, butterflies, and other motifs. Usually, the pictorial designs are charted, which gives you a helpful visual image of the design to work from.

This page is dedicated to offering you free filet crochet patterns and charts, which you are welcome to use in the crochet projects of your choice.
