How to read a Filet Crochet pattern

Filet crochet patterns don’t describe in text what to do row by row. Instead, they are diagrams with the symbols above. The symbols tell the person what kind of stitches to use. Filet crochet usually uses only Solid Mesh and Open Mesh crochet stitches. Sometimes Lacet Mesh, Long Mesh and Popcorn stitches are also used.

Please note that image below on how to read a filet crochet pattern is using US stitch terms.

The only thing you really need when making filet crochet patterns is TIME. Time is your greatest resource on this planet. You can spend your time either being creative and give the world something it has never seen before, OR not :) Enough of the pep talk. All I am saying is, At Least Give Creativity Some of your Time. You Deserve It.
