This valance is an absolute must for your favorite fly fisherman. It features a life-size rainbow trout rising out of the water to catch a perfectly-placed fly. The rod pocket is built into the design so the curtain rod can be woven in and out at the top. There is a repeat in the rock pattern so the valance can be expanded to your desired size. This is a great project for the intermediate crocheter. In addition to detailed instructions, a graph is also provided for reference. This filet crochet valance is worked from side to side. The pattern is writen in U.S. terms. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You should already know how to ch, sl st, sc, hdc, and dc.

I have always loved crafting! My mom and I learned to crochet together when I was 12 because there was a crocheted vest I wanted to make. We worked through it and figured it out together. I have been crocheting ever since. I started writing down patterns when making snowflakes, one of my favorite projects to make. I love working on any kind of thread crochet project such as connect as you go motifs, filet crochet, etc. My other favorite crochet projects are working on my reversible designs. I also enjoy cross stitch and knitting. Someday I hope to learn quilting and tatting.
