Just Found Crochetville

Recommended Posts

How did I never find this place before?!? I'm excited to explore this site and admire everyone's creations. I've been crocheting for about 10 years now but still feel very much like a beginner. I mainly use cotton yarn and make kitchen itemsn (dishcloths, potholders, etc.) mainly because I usually don't have a lot of time to devote to a project. Plus, I tend to get bored if it's the same stitch over and over for very much - like traditional afghans. My mom crocheted when I was younger, and she was taught by my great-grandmother. My mom mainly made afghans and doilies. I mainly remember my granny making the toppers for tea towels and giving those as Christmas presents. One day I would like to learn filet crochet, but I don't think that will be anytime soon. I'm looking forward to talking with all of you!

Welcome to the 'ville! 

Psst, filet crochet, the traditional doily sort, is nothing but US DCs and chains -- really.  If you can do those stitches, and count to 3, you are 99% of the way there.   Hass design has a really nice instruction section, see the menu at the top of the link (when you click on a section, like basic filet techniques, there's a video at the top but also scroll down for a stitch diagram that matches the open or closed meshes (& variations) you will see on the corresponding pattern grid.
