Filet Fantastic: Part 7 – Diagonal Stripes

Welcome to part 7 of the Filet Fantastic Crochet Along folks! I seems as if we are going really fast with this CAL – or is it just me? Part 7 is actually one of my most favourite sections, I love the effect of the filet on this part.

But before we get to part 7 I’m going to share a few of the finished 6’s that have been shared on Ravelry, in the Facebook group and Instagram because I really like that part – it’s just such a lovely thing to have everyone crocheting along together and see each other’s progress isn’t it.

If you want to link your photos the hashtag for this years CAL is #KCACOUKCAL21 for Twitter and Instagram. Though you you can also join in with any progress photos by linking your projects on your favourite social media sites: Ravelry, my Facebook page or Facebook group and Pinterest.

If you are brand new to the CAL there’s is still plenty of time to join in with us. You can find all the information you need on the CAL landing page, where I’ll link all the CAL posts in one place as I add them here to the blog. Yarn packs are still available from the lovely folks at Black Sheep Wools and there are a number of CAL accessories that are also available from some fabulous small businesses (that I talked a little more about here).

❤️🧡💛 Purchase Yarn Kit from Black Sheep Wools 💚💙💜

During the duration of the CAL this pattern will be released part by part here on the blog and also via Ravelry updates in the form of a printer friendly PDF ebooklet that is available for purchase. Please note you will only have to purchase the pattern once, updates will be automatically added so your pattern is updated each week and at the end of the 12 weeks you will have the full pattern to keep. As with any purchase you make of my patterns your support of me and my crochet endeavours is very much appreciated – thank you for supporting my work!

If you are new to filet crochet you might find my blog post about ‘Top Tips for Filet Crochet’ useful on how to read filet crochet charts with some specific tips on the technique.

Filet Fantastic: Part 7 – Diagonal Stripes

Yarn: 105g / 273m  or 3 balls of of Scheepjes Riverwashed Narmada (Shade  962) or 105g / 315m or 2 balls of Scheepjes Colour Crafter in Ameland (1725).

Hook: 3.5 mm (US size E/4)

You will also need: Scissors, A yarn needle

Gauge: 5tr = 2.5cm (1inch). Gauge is not critical for this design, with each part I will provide the size of my work. If your gauge does not meet mine it will just mean you will end up with a bigger or smaller blanket. If you wish to match my gauge you might try going up a hook size if your tension is quite tight, or going down a hook size if your tension is looser.

Finished Size:  Part 7 – 115 x 94 cm (45 x 37 inches)

And that’s it! We are slowly getting bigger (and have to have more creative when photographing our piece – I think I was standing on a chair at this point!). Only five more sections after this to go until you have your own special and unique blanket to snuggle under.
