Filet crochet patterns are not always traditional flat meshes.Filet crocheting allows you easily to design your own 3-D filet crochet pattern. Let's consider one of the ways how to crochet this kind of pattern.
For example, a typical open mesh consists of: double crochet, chain 2, double crochet, (dc, ch2, dc). Each cells of the mesh is a rectangular. To make a 3-D flower on the open cell, crochet a petal on the each side of the rectangular.
|To crochet each petal:
chain 2, 3 double crochet, chain 2 (ch2, 3dc, ch2). Chain 2 (first
and last stitches of each petal) have to be crocheted INTO the very
apex of the rectangular.
This way in every apex there will be two "chain 2" from the two adjacent petals each. Arrows 1,2,3,4, show direction of crocheting for each petal.
|Petal # 1.Turn your work 180 degrees to change direction of crocheting. Follow direction of arrow 1.|
|Petal # 2.Turn your work 90 degrees to change direction of crocheting. Follow direction of arrow 2.|
|Petal # 3.Turn your work 90 degrees to change direction of crocheting. Follow direction of arrow 3.|
|Petal # 4.Turn your work 90 degrees to change direction of crocheting. Follow direction of arrow 4.|
|Last stitch of the petal #4 is crocheted into the same apex where the very first stitch of the petal # 1 was. Turn your work the way you crocheted filet mesh before you started to crochet a flower and continue the mesh.|
