As a result of a recent request, I am re-blogging this post from a year ago on how to crochet your family name in filet crochet.
A friend of mine gave me this pattern many years ago, and this week I FINALLY checked this project off my “To Do” list! I remember seeing this in “Country Sampler Magazine” but the cost of the completed project framed there was around $150.00. The cost of mine…$8.00 for the pattern (a gift from a friend) and crochet thread, $3.00. So I am feeling rather good about the enjoyable time spent crocheting and getting this “when-I-have-time” project completed! Check out this great site for free crochet patterns, http://www.crochetdoilies.com/crochet_border_filet.html (An example.)
Instructions for the one pictured above are as follows: (click to download)
