Filet Crochet: January 9 meeting preview

Filet crochet is a technique that can be used to make lovely lacy patterns, as simple or intricate as you like. Best of all, it uses only a few stitches - mostly double crochet and chains! At this month's meeting, you'll get a chance to learn the basics of filet with a simple project - a small square with a heart.

The meeting will be Saturday, January 9 at the Textile Center of Minnesota, 3000 University Ave SE, with the following schedule:
  • 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM - Open Crochet
  • 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM - Announcements and Show and Tell
  • 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM - Crochet Education
  • 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM – Open Crochet
To get the most out of this meeting you'll need to bring:

  • A few ounces of thread or yarn; light or medium colors are easiest to work with. Although filet crochet is most often associated with fine threads, it can be worked in any weight of yarn or thread.
  • Appropriate sized crochet hook for the thread or yarn.
