As promised, I have a beautiful new piece of filet crochet to share with you today! I went at a much slower pace with this one and it was very relaxing. This is the Grand Lilies doily from Hass Design.
It’s quite a bit smaller than the Leipzig doily and much less complicated. This design was nothing but open and filled squares with very few increases and decreases and I definitely recommend it if you’re just starting out. I used a size 7 hook and #10 thread and I think it came out well. It’ll look even better once I’ve blocked it but I need to get some blocking board and starch.
I highly recommend Hass Design for filet crochet patterns. They’re very reasonably priced, absolutely gorgeous, and supporting an independent designer is always a win. They also have crochet-alongs so you can learn filet crochet – that’s how I learned, years ago!
I’ve got something of a surprise for next week that I’m extremely excited about. It was a surprise to me as well. See you then!
