I'm on a owl designing kick! This is my third one! It's 13x25 inches in the filet stitch and uses 650 yards, #10 thread and a #7 steel hook. I have provided a free link to the chart and I hope you like it!

I love, love, love this!
I love owls, and I love filet crochet! (especially since I can't do it anymore due to my wrists)

Thank you for the nice words! I'm so sorry that you can't do filet anymore  Sad
I hope one day your wrists will be cured!

Great pattern, love the positive/negative effect, works great on the owl. Probably her day/night sides Grin

Yes! That's the look I wanted to achieve. Thanks for noticing that!

Maria, this is a beautiful piece.  Smiley Smiley Wonder how big it would turn out if one used a sock yarn, or some other kind of fine yarn.  Probably would be gigantic!  I love how you've done this one with the #10 thread, though.

Hi Joanie, It would probably be an afghan size. If you used an F/3.75mm hook and a fingering weight, which is close to sock yarn weight, the size would bump up to 40 inches by 72 inches!

This is really cool! I might have to try it out for myself. I have never done filet crochet, so it's probably about time I learn. Thanks!

You can also check my Ravelry page for more filet pieces. If you need more help, PM me.
