PATTERN DETAILS

These little filet crochet chicks make a really unique baby gift of handmade baby washcloths, and wrapped up around three Spangler Candy Company's Dum Dums and tied with grosgrain ribbon, they serve as an adorable party favor at a baby shower. Everyone has something special to take home from the shower, and the little cloths are actually functional washcloths. Made of cotton yarn, they are completely washable. Of course I can imagine a real interesting time when tiny little baby fingers get tangled in all those open meshes. However I made these for favors at a friend's baby shower and several friends have told me they use theirs in the shower all the time. This pattern will teach you the basics of filet crochet, how to make this cloth and how to design your own filet crochet patterns. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY basic filet crochet stitches facility working with small sized steel crochet hooks and fine yarn GAUGE 27 stitches and 12 rows hdc = 4 x 4 inch square.
