    Finished my Butterfly panels. Am designing some flower panels to alternate with butterflies , (for a tablecloth topper ?) I'm not tired of filet crochet , yet.
    These are the Mexican Silverspot, Blue Nymph , Eastern Festoon, Asian Manto, & Necria Manco from About.com's Butterfly graphs. (free !)
    Wow Kitty!

    Hi Kitty, I love the butterflies! I am going to make a filet crochet butterfly blanket. I wanted to make it in a variegated yarn but I'm not sure the butterfly would show up well so I am going to make it in a single color.

You can make any cross stitch graph into a filet graph this way. [Then, because i have trouble counting the regular filet squares( that are 4 dcs across for full squares) i simplified to 3dcs for full squares.]My foundation chain is chain 80+4( for the 40 squares ) turn, then dc in the 5th chain from hook, chain 1 , skip one ch dc in the next ch . alternating across the chain.this makes a row of open squares. I always count the squares to check if there are 40, before i chain 4 turn and dc in the top of the first dc of the last row.Whenever the pattern has a solid (Xed ) square i do dc, dc, dc, instead of dc ch1 dc.Also to make life easier, i use charts with the images are the same (mirror ) on each side.(otherwise you have to read the chart from left to right then right to left then left to right, repeatedly, which is confusing. Like this little bunny...Happy Easter!!

    Those gorgeous butterfly squares would make a lovely table runner for my butterfly candlesticks!
