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

This is my second design sample swatch that represents one quarter of an overall design. Again, it is intended for a 20×20 inch throw pillow/cushion, and again I am using the technique of double filet crochet/intermeshing crochet. I worked the 2 cell border all around the swatch to ensure I would get an accurate measurement of the inner design. As with the first swatch, working out the design proved to be a lot easier that I had originally thought it would be.

The design has turned out very well. However, I intend to make a small change to the design when I actually work the project, as I think a solid colour border will give the design a better look.

My sample swatch measures 9¼” X 9” (not blocked) I used a 4.mm crochet hook and DK yarn left over from a previous projects.

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

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.

Crochet Geometric Design – Interlocking crochet – Double Filet Crochet – Intermeshing Crochet

I have once again been experimenting with geometric designs using the technique of intermeshing –double filet crochet. The inspiration for the above design came from the chart below, which I found in a box of old charts. I think it was a machine knitting chart at one time.

In my opinion, the experiment has turned out very well, and I intend to use the design to make an Afghan. But I think this would also be a great design for a throw cushion/pillow.

My sample swatch measures 19.5” X 13” I used a 4.mm crochet hook and DK yarn left over from a previous projects. Unfortunately, I ran out of black yarn and had to substitute navy yarn in order to complete the design.

This design is reversible.

Crochet Motif – Double Filet Crochet – Interlocking crochet – Intermeshing Crochet

 

SideA

This motif forms the front of a cover for a heat pad which, when finished, will have a back made of navy toweling fabric. As is normally the case with Double Filet Crochet/Interlocking crochet/Intermeshing Crochet, the fabric/motif is reversible.

SideB

The inspiration for the motif came from this cross stitch chart …

pad

Which I tweaked a little and came up with this chart to work from, using the technique of Double Filet Crochet/Interlocking crochet/Intermeshing Crochet.

Chart

The finished motif measured 12.5″ x 12.5″, which is slightly smaller than required. So I worked a further row of filet all around the motif in order to make the piece up to the required measurements to cover the heat pad.

 

To make my motif:
Yarn Type: DK Acrylic knitting yarn left over from a previous project, in red and navy.
Needles: 4.00mm crochet hook.
Method: As below.

Abbreviations

dcif (double crochet worked in the front post)
dcib (double crochet worked in the back post)
ch (chain)
dc (double crochet)

Foundation Row Col B: Work a row of filet mesh consisting of 38 cells, place last loop on stitch holder and set aside.
Foundation Row Col A: Work a row of filet mesh consisting of 39 cells.

Place colour A layer on top of colour B layer, with working yarn of both pieces to the right (I usually hold the two layers together in the middle with a split ring stitch marker as this stops the pieces twisting).

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

Novsa

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.

Crochet Woven Filet Mesh Tartan/Plaid Afghan/Blanket/Throw Part 1

Octmont

Ever since I first saw a woven crochet tartan Afghan two years ago, I have wanted to try to make one. The technique appeared to be quite simple, and I quite like tartan/plaid. However, it took a very long time for me to decide on a design because, although I like tartan/plaid, I am not fond of overly bright colours or busy designs. The inspiration for my Afghan came from the Harley Davidson tartan.

harleydavidson

The basic design was quite easy to work out as it basically consists of stripes of contrasting colour, of varying widths, and crossed at right angles against a solid colour background.

Octchart

Having worked out my design, I now needed yarn….

The yarn I chose to use is 100% acrylic Aran. I’ve never used Aran for crochet before, but I chose Aran because I wanted my design to have a more chunky and oversized look. My favourite colour is black, I think it adds drama to everything and is therefore perfect for the base colour of my Afghan. The other contrast colours I’ve used are Grape, Sliver Grey and Cream. Unfortunately, I had to use two different brands of yarn as I was unable to obtain all the colours in the same brand. I am a bit worried about how this will affect the finished project as the black yarn is considerably softer than the contrasting colours.

So finally, on 8th October this year I started my first woven crochet Afghan. I have almost completed the filet mesh base, with only 12 inches to go. If all goes well, I hope to have the weaving done by Christmas.

How will it turn out? Watch this space!
