filet crochet program?

Recommended Posts

can anyone give me insight on a good filet crochet program for your computer? I really want to get into it and don't know where to really start.

 

Thank you, I hope I put this in the right thread.

Hi....not sure about a program, but if there is one I'm sure you'll get an answer in a short time. I follow patterns and sometimes make my own with graph paper. Old school for an old lady...lol!

thank you for replying.  the one from sand castle is the only one I can find. except for the one that is a free download and that one doesn't even have a name or where it comes from. I just wanted to see if anyone had input on it or any others before I just paid 50.00. you know? judy I wish I could do it old school but I wouldn't know where to start.  I just started learning how to crochet in general in sept. and i'm trying to try my hand at different stuff. thank yall for replying back!!

I want to be able to do designs and names in the doilies. I can't draw so I wouldn't know what or how to put what in what square on a paper grid. that's why I was searching for a program that would help me with that.

You might want to look at some books on filet, such as this by B Barnden http://www.amazon.com/Filet-Crochet-Easy---Follow-Collection/dp/0312373740/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1395368430&sr=8-5&keywords=filet+crochet   it includes an alphabet and different small designs.  

 

Have you done any filet so far?

no actually I haven't I've tried doing it thru watching a video but I didn't have a design at the time to be able to go with. I was just practicing with the video. just kindof wanted to see what it was like. and I really like it.

filet is beautiful and you can do a lot of things with it.  It does take practice to get all your stitches to line up so the squares are nice and square.  Working with really small thread is somewhat different than working with large yarn, I find i need a lot more tension on thread than i need with yarn.  So anyway, i would suggest that you do some practicing with fine thread and small hooks before you commit to making name doilies.

The one from Sandcastle is worth EVERY penny!

 

Not only does it do filet, it also does regular charting and you can customize the height of the stitches.

 

Out of all the programs that I've tried - I think it's the best one out there and use it exclusively.
