Filet crochet bag - free pattern

Pin It

 

My first big project when I learnt to crochet was a filet crochet table cloth. It was very easy as you use only chains and double crochet stitches. Then I slowly progressed to more advanced stitches and techniques and filet crochet took a back seat. Lately I had been seeing a few filet crochet bags on Pinterest and I wanted one for me too. So I designed this very simple bag and I'm so much in love with this design that I'm considering making a pullover using this pattern. 



This pattern is written using standard American terms. 

Materials:

300 yards (275 meters) sport weight yarn
D/3.25 mm crochet hook
stitch markers
yarn hook

Stitches/Abbreviations Used

** - repeat instructions within asterisks as many times as instructed
[ ] - repeat stitches within parenthesis as a set as many times as instructed
Ch - chain
sl st - slip stitch
sc - single crochet (UK - double crochet)
dc - double crochet (UK - treble)
