I am trying my hand at creating filet crochet patterns. I thought I should start with something as simple as a bookmark.
I made the chart using Microsoft Excel. It was quite easy.
And I set to work. I used size ten cotton thread and Boye size 7 steel hook. Usually, with size ten thread I use size ten hook, which produce tight stitches.
I like crocheting tightly, but this time I wanted to try looser stitches. As a result, my bookmark came out much bigger than I expected. It measures eight by three inches.
