Delicate Filet Crochet Shawls

Filet technique may seem old-school, but it has a great comeback these days! It’s no longer the technique of grandmas and their sheer curtains with pixel-like shapes of ducklings – modern designers prove it, making for instance these gorgeous crochet shawls in the pictures below!

It’s based on alternating “filled” and “empty” little squares to create lacy shapes and patterns. Technique is still just a technique, and that means that you can employ it in a million different ways, in a million different projects. Modern filet is geometrical, minimal and edgy. It does not follow picturesque motifs or naive animal silhouettes – it uses simple forms to create eye-catching patterns. Take a look at examples below and search for links to free patterns under the pictures.
