At about six o’clock on Friday night, I decided that I needed to get over my apprehension about filet crochet and just do it.  The good news: My apprehension was unfounded.  Filet crochet is super easy!

It is so super easy, in fact, that I thought I could design a series of sci fi bookmarks with FRELL (Farscape), FRAK (BSG), and SHINY (Firefly) and still have time to paint a canvas and maybe watch something on TV with my husband before bed.  Snort.  Twelve hours later, I have finished the bookmark – the one, lone, single bookmark, albeit the one, lone single bookmark containing the best faux-swear word in all of science fiction: Frell!  (For the record, one can also be a frellnik.)

If you’ve never tried filet crochet, you’re going to be astounded.  It’s basically this: (DC, ch 2, sk 2), repeat.  That’s just sleazy easy.

Use a Size 0 thread (“Classic 10”) and a 1.5mm hook for best results.
