Woodland Wildlife in Filet Crochet


Reviewed by Christine Weiher, Editor,

Being out in the open air and seeing all the wonderful creatures running about is such a sight to see. What's even greater are the animals you don't typically see on a daily basis, like the ones you see in a forest. Woodland creatures are amazing and when you can bring them into your home it's like you have your own forest, and that's exactly what Leisure Arts intended with their book Woodland Wildlife in Filet Crochet.

Woodland Wildlife teaches you to use open spaces and blocks when crocheting to create motifs. In this case, you can create gorgeous woodland animal silhouettes for throw pillows and other home decor. You can take your pick from a bear, rabbit, deer, elk, fox, hummingbird, finches, owl, or squirrel. This short guide has clear, easy-to-use templates that are perfect for those just learning to filet crochet.

Bringing the forest into your home with 9 animal silhouettes can truly transform any room. In the designs within the book, solid blocks are formed with three double crochet stitches, and open spaces are formed by a chain two and a double crochet; which are typically pretty easy stitches. With the patterns listed as easy skill levels, and instructions for how to follow a chart, you will be filet crocheting in no time.

You would think that because filet crochet is so delicate you can't wash it, but you certainly can. The threadwork is very durable and can last a long time with the proper care. In fact, while working up your design the threads can get oily from your hands, so it's a good idea to wash the design when you're done; of course hand-washing is the way to go. Ready. Set. Filet.
