This design uses the technique of intermeshing crochet – double filet crochet, and is intended for a 20×20 inch throw pillow/cushion. The sample swatch represents one quarter of the overall design, and was not only necessary to determine the ultimate size of the finished project, but also to work out the pattern for the design. This proved a lot easier that I had originally thought it would be.
The above design chart was adapted from an old hand drawn copy of the chart shown below. I am unaware of the origin of the old chart.
My sample swatch measures 10¼”x10” (not blocked). I used a 4mm crochet hook and Double Knitting yarn, left over from a previous projects.
This design is reversible.
