I was going to wait to post on this project until the second one was done, but Matushka Emily has blown my cover
! (Only kidding, Matushka! I was looking for a convenient excuse to post anyway!) Truth be told, it was rather exciting to finish. Especially since I had to make up the pattern myself. I couldn’t find anything like it on-line.
I’d never done anything in filet crochet before, but always wanted to. I love lace, and yarn is so much easier to work with than thread for lacemaking!
I’ve had requests for the pattern, but I hate to tell you: I am unable to give one for the simple fact that I don’t know how! I have my own notes (mostly involving graph paper) but I’m sure no one else would be able to follow that. Father has been encouraging me to start an Etsy shop and sell these. I might just do that, including Latin crosses for non-Orthodox (who think the three-bar is weird!). I guess I’ll have to see what the market is like and try to figure out how much to charge for them. The one pictured above is 34 inches x 44 inches, approximately. I’d probably also include bonnets and such so there would be a broader price range. Any thoughts are more than welcome!
