Crochet Sample Swatch – Interlocking crochet – Intermeshing Crochet – Double Filet Crochet

This is my latest chart experiment. I can’t remember where I first saw this design, but I used it to make a knitted shopping bag some years ago. Recently, I came across the design again and decided to make another bag, but this time using the technique of intermeshing crochet/double filet crochet, as I thought this would produce a more sturdy bag.

Original chart

I used the original to created an amended chart that I could work from, but I deliberately omitted the first and last cell of each row of the design from my swatch, as I was not sure that I would have enough yarn to complete the design.

Amended Chart

The basic design was quite easy to tweak and the resulting swatch, which although much chunkier-looking than the original knitted version, is very nice. I have now decided not to make the shopping bag, but thought I would share the sample swatch with you.
