Thread Crochet II

Can you see make out the subject of this antimacassar? This is how far I got after working on this intermittently through the day. I either need to take a little more time or pay more attention to what I am doing. I keep missing stitches, frogging, re-crocheting, etc. There are forty-nine rows in this chart and this marks the halfway point, measuring approximately 5.25 x 7 inches, and about 5.25 hours of work. I will send the specifications to my client and hpefully, this will suffice her curiosity and secure the commission. I do intend to finish this and will post the finished object when done.

One of my favorite songs is “Night and Day,” by Cole Porter, performed by U2 from the album Red, Hot +Blue: A Tribute to Cole Porter. I finally was able to obtain the song for my own listening pleasure and decided to create this scarf as homage, and as a sample for my upcoming Filet Crochet class at The Knitting Tree, L A.

This filet crochet pattern is based on a 3×3 grid, not your normal 4 x 3 grid, so that every square represents 3 double crochet versus 4.

As with all my patterns:

  • I condone any realized profit from selling your finished project
  • I ask that you do not duplicate or copy the pattern for dissemination among your friends
  • If you are Ravelry, I would appreciate your linking your project to this recipe, so I can send a request to feature your finished object
