I named this website CrochetArtDesign due to the amazing images you can design using the Filet Crochet technique.

Filet Crochet is a technique where you create images using filled in spaces and open spaces. The picture below shows how you can decrease and increase at beginning and end of row.

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.
