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

Pattern: The Knitting Tree by Hooker Leo of A Hooker’s World
Yarn A: Cascade 220 Heathers (9599 Savanna)
Yarn B: Universal Deluxe Superwash (728 Pulp)
Hook: US H – 5.0 mm
Dimensions: 12-inch square

This is my store sample for the tapestry crochet class I will begin teaching this month at The Knitting Tree L A. Had I been more attentive when making my yarn choices, I would have chosen two colors by the same manufacturer. I say this because it wasn’t until I started that I realized how much thinner/stretchy the Universal yarn was than the Cascade yarn. As such, I was not able to carry my colors because the first stitch in the lighter color never appeared proper. Therefore, while you can’t see them, there are a gazillion ends behind that fabric.

Pattern Proviso

The pattern is available on my patterns page, which may be accessed from the navigation menu at top or by following the pattern link. While I condone your profit from making this pillow, I do ask that you do not copy the pattern and disseminate among your friends, as I don’t think USD $2.50 is an exorbitant fee for a crochet pattern. As with all my patterns, if you maintain a presence on Ravelry, I would appreciate your linking to the pattern, so I can contact you and feature your project on the pattern page.

Happy hooking!
