Hi!

I made this curtain for my bedroom window from the pattern used to teach filet crochet. It's perfect for this window, which doesn't get very much sunlight through it to begin with.

Yes! Finally someone made and posted this project from the book. I've made a few attempts but can't get filet crochet figured out. Great job.

Crocheting is like prostitution.  First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.  Maybe that is why they call us Hookers?

Wow That's incredible! I can never figure out filet charts I'm envious of any one that can! Great job!

OMG ... I love this curtain. Where did you find the pattern, if you don't mind my asking. You did a fabulous job on this!  You have been Wisted and Rocked!

Wow!! Thanks everyone!

tamirive & holytararor: filet crochet was pretty tricky to get the hang of. I found Debbie Stoller's analogy of windows very useful; there's a dc for each window frame, and then 2 stitches between them that are either "open" (2 ch), or "shut" (2 dc). Feel free to PM if you have questions or want further explanation. Once you get the hang of it, it's very satisfying.

solitaire: Thank you! The pattern is from the "Stitch n Bitch Crochet: the Happy Hooker" by Debbie Stoller. It's actually not a curtain pattern, just a bat chart she uses to introduce filet crochet as a technique. There are many other charts and patterns for filet crochet online. Try it!

I saw the picture of this before i saw the actual post, and i thought, "that looks like the bat pattern from the happy hooker," and behold! it is. You did a killer job. Love it.

OH that is fantastic. Awesome idea to spice up a window that doesn't get much light!! I've liked the idea of filet, but it's all seemed so old-fashioned! I've just wisted myself a batty filet shawl!
