A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.


I love learning new techniques, experimenting with known stitches and developing new ways to use them. I have been intrigued by patterns for crochet interlock, Double Filet is just another name for interlocking or intermeshing. The methods are exactly the same except generally with a different starting method to the one Tanis Galik describes in her new book…I just had to get the book to try it!

The more I use it, the better I am getting at it. It takes some adjusting to understand the process. When I am doing regular crochet, I know when my pattern is off and generally why. This is a tad different, but after third attempt, I was able to figure out how to do it .

The book has about 80 stitch patterns, give or take a few! Tanis could have made it into two or three books, considering how many projects there are–afghans, purses etc. It is worth buying, even if just to learn the technique.

What I have a problem with is the look of the beginning and ending rows. I’m trying to figure out if there is a way to change that a tad somehow so that it doesn’t look off kilter. Though I am a tad OCD on such things, most people may not feel the same way as I do on that part. The rest of the stitch patterns are awesome! This textured interlocking style makes so much sense for blankets. I look forward to playing with some serious patterning.

Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!

  1. Love it!

    in reply, i have sold one item on artfire, and really like their set up. I will be listing more items soon and really pushing the listings, so we will see. If you want to email me I have to publish comments on my blog, so you could send me your email and I won't post it.

  2. Yes, this book is a gem! Wish I lived closer and we could explore the new terrain together. But looks like you've got a real head start ahead of me though as always;)

  3. Just came across your website after a search for double filet, I don’t know if you went on to do more, will try and look but not very technical but there are different ways to start and finish off
