These patterns are from the 1923 Elyria, Ohio Chronicle-Telegram. I’ve stitched quite of bit of filet crochet in my day, but I’ve always been a little disappointed in the results. For some reason, my filet stitches end up more rectangular than square (more wide than tall), and I’ve never been able to figure out what I was doing wrong. Of course, these patterns also make nice one-color patterns for cross stitch (where you don’t have to worry about wonky squares). Click images to enlarge.
