Filet Crochet to Wear

Beginner-Friendly Patterns for Filet Crochet Clothes

Lauren Willis


Learn to filet crochet with this collection of 17 crochet patterns for filet crochet garments including sweaters, tanks, tee shirts and cardigans. Filet crochet only uses two stitches in a grid formation – chain stitch and double crochet. This stitch combination creates a mesh-like fabric which is great for showing different motifs and patterns.

Filet crochet was traditionally worked using cotton perle thread and used to create delicate home décor projects like placemats, coasters and tablecloths as well as curtains. This fun collection takes it to another level by working it in thicker yarn and shows how impactful it can be when it's used for garments. The author explains everything you need to know about how to work in filet crochet, including how to follow a chart to work the motifs, the stitches required and other tips and tricks!

The size grading for all of the featured projects ranges from small adult up to another 10 sizes so the patterns are very size inclusive.
