Another view (with my thread cutter to better show the size)


Comments: A rose is a rose is a rose...and this is a simple rose surrounded by an easy border.

The sample for this doily is crocheted with FILET #1

Size : 7 1/2 inches

Material :Cebelia 10, hook 1.15; you may want to give a look to my virtual store if you need materials.

Stitches : ch, sc, dc, picot = 3 ch, sc on last st made, sh = shell = (2 dc, 2 ch, 2 dc) in same sp

Difficulty: medium


Start with 8 ch.

Row 1.Dc in 8th ch from hook (7 chs = 2 ch + dc + 2 ch): 1 empty square

Rows 2-38 . Proceed following the diagram. (If the previous link does not work, click here )

Use oblique increasing technique for increasing rows 2-19 and for decreasing rows 20-38. At the end of row 38, do not cut thread; crochet the edging


1. sl st in next sp, *(4 ch, sc in next sp)*; Repeat * to * all around; Join with sl st in first st.

2. shell in ea sp all around, 3 dc in corners; Join with sl st in first st

3. (shell in shell) along sides, (dc on next dc, 1 ch) 3 times in corners; Join with sl st in first st.

4.(shell in shell) along sides, (2 dc on next dc, 1 ch) 3 times in corners; Join with sl st in first st.

5 (dc, picot, dc) in shells along sides; [2 dc on next dc, dc on next dc, picot, (dc on next dc) 2 times, picot, dc on next dc, 2 dc on next dc] in corners; Join with sl st in first st. Cut thread.

N.B. Substitute first dc with 3 ch; for a filet primer, with increase and decrease explanations, go here


  • Substitute ever (also if not explicitly said) first st in a row as follows:
    • first sc with 1 ch, sc;
    • first hdc with 2 ch;
    • first dc with 3 ch;
    • first tr with 4 ch...and so on;
  • When you read "sl st to <location>", where the location is not immediately contiguous to last st, this means of course "an appropriate number of sl sts for reaching <location>".
  • Also if I do not specify it, if you lasted prev row on a st (say st1), while you must start next row in another st (say st2), make an appropriate number of sl sts to reach st2.
