This is done in the Filet and Lacet technique. You can use thread or yarn. I used baby yarn, the pompadour type, and an F/3.75mm hook. Measurements are 13''x 9''.

The free pattern charts are here:

Hope you like it!

Excellent work! Filet work is so cool looking in a grandma kind of way (imho). I just started my first piece (10 thread and an 8 hook) and it's a knucklebuster (makes my hands go numb).

Great Job!

Thanks everyone! Thread work does take some getting used to, with the tiny hooks, but it's work the effort. There's a way of making a custom grip for the hook by using polymer clay and wrapping it around the hook with your hand print, then baking it. Does anyone know where that tutorial is located?
Thanks!

That is a great idea, wonder if you can make it "transferable" between hooks ( I suppose not as they're different diameters...)

Here is Caol Ventura's video for making the hook handles.
