Tulip Filet Kerchief

Image of Tulip Filet Kerchief Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

It seems alot of designers are into designing kerchiefs these days! Well here is one that I came up with. Even though it is done in filet, I have decided to write out the instructions as well as provide a graph to follow. That way beginners in filet crochet can get a better sense of how to follow a chart by actually seeing it written out.

Basic Filet information.
The chart provided is actually upside down in the way the stitches are worked. When you print it out, turn it over and start at the wide end and work your way to the narrow point.

Filet is usually done by following a stitch chart or a graph. If you look on the graph, you will see black spaces. These will be referred to as "blocks". The open spaces will be referred to as "spaces". The first 2 rows explain how to make blocks and spaces. After that, you will be instructed how many blocks and spaces you will need to make as you go.

Instructions
ROW 1: Ch213. Dc in 4th ch from hook and in each ch across. You should now have 210 dc and a ch3 at the end that will count as a dc. For a total of 211 dc. Ch3, turn.

ROW 2: Sk first dc. Dc in each of the next 6dc. Ch2. *Sk next 2 dc. Dc in next dc. Ch2. Rep from * 65 times. Sk next 2 dc, dc in each of the next 6dc and in the top of ch3. Ch1, turn.

ROW 3: Sk first dc. Slst in each of the next 3dc. Ch3. Dc in each of the next 3dc. Dc in each of the next 2 chs. Dc in next dc. (Ch2. Sk next 2 chs. Dc in next dc. (space made)) Work 1 more space.
