Filet Crochet Butterfly

Filet Crochet Butterfly

Out of a myriad of lace comes the Filet Crochet Butterfly. We love the design of this pattern that kind of sneaks the butterfly in. There is a lacy and a solid version, which you can make in any yarn weight. This pattern comes with charts to show you how to filet crochet easily. You can use this motif for whatever project you want or make it into a wall hanging decoration. There is also a tutorial if you need more help creating this gorgeous crochet pattern.

Any weight of yarn may be used along with the proper crochet hook for the yarn.

This pattern contains easy to follow stitch charts to create a swim suit cover up for the beach or pool. I love the idea. It allows you to wear your suit while out site seeing but you get to keep your modesty at the same time. The white is a great summer color but I know it would get too dirty. I want to play around with the colors and maybe do one in multi.

Thanks! Just to clarify though - this is just the chart for the butterfly. The swimsuit coverup didn't turn out well so I never wrote the pattern for that.

I just love this filet crochet butterfly pattern. I have made a filet crochet pattern before in the form of a bookmark and it was really easy to do. This project is a lot larger and I think all the work placed into making it will be worth it in the end.

The skill level is intermediate but once you master the concept, this technique is easy peasy. I was an avid cross stitcher for years and somehow I switched over to crochet. To me, this technique is the best of both worlds.

When I was learning to crochet, I came across a Filet pattern in an old pamphlet. Being primarily self taught (my grandmother had shown me a few basic stitches), I didnt have a clue that filet was considered an advanced stitch. Ive loved it ever since, and the two pattern charts the designer includes are just lovely. If you dont know how to work Filet, youll have to go to her tutorial to find out.

L love this Crochet Butterfly, the only problem I have is I couldn't find the chart of stitches or the pattern for the shirt she made with this. I Really hope to and if anyone can lead me to the right place or tell me what I'm doing wrong. Please..

Cheryl I just now saw this comment. The butterfly chart is available in 2 different versions on my blog at the link listed above. (http// == het-butterfly-chart/) I never did publish the pattern for the swimsuit coverup because I wasn't happy with how it turned out (it was ok, but just ok). If you're not familiar with fillet crochet, the charts are different than the normal stitch charts you may be used to - each box on the chart represents a square in the mesh. There is a tutorial linked on that blog post where you can find more information about how to read the chart. (http// == ochet/) I hope this helps!
