Introduction

Welcome to the exciting world of modern filet crochet! This contemporary twist on a classic crochet technique allows you to create beautiful, intricate patterns that add a touch of elegance and style to any project. Today, we’ll explore the basics of modern filet crochet, show you a simple heart pattern, and introduce a fantastic tool that makes designing your own patterns a breeze: the Modern Filet Crochet Pattern Generator.

Filet crochet

Modern filet crochet is an evolution of the traditional filet crochet technique, which has been around since the 19th century. While classic filet crochet focuses on a grid of open and filled squares arranged in horizontal and vertical lines, modern filet crochet often emphasizes diagonal patterns. This diagonal approach brings a dynamic, contemporary flair to the timeless craft.

In filet crochet, patterns are formed by creating open squares (usually consisting of a chain space – ch) and filled squares (typically made of one double crochet – dc). By combining these squares in various arrangements, you can create intricate images and designs.

Let’s start with a simple yet charming heart pattern to get you acquainted with modern filet crochet. Below is a basic chart for a heart design:
