Hope you like this pattern! Please tell me what you think!

I designed this filet piece as a project you could get done in a week-end. I used Bernat Softee that I doubled. If you wanted to, a single strand of a soft worsted would make be a good substitute. I do like how the 2 strands of baby yarn feel, though.

I have given my own directions for the extended double crochet in my own words. If you would like to make the bear in double crochet, go right ahead! It will just be a little squat but still charming. Feel free to weave a ribbon through the holes of his bow tie.

I retain all copyrights to my pattern and grant that you may use the pattern for personal use only. The product made or the pattern itself may not be sold. You may not profit from my work.
