Filet crochet traditionally uses fine crochet thread to create lace (amongst other items). Here I have used Coats Mercer 20 pink crochet thread to create the filet mesh background. I crocheted the snowflake from decorative silver thread and stitched it onto the background. It took approximately 18 hours to make.
The pink box frame has been shop-bought and measures 17cm x 12cm. There is a glass pane protecting the work and a thick cardboard backing with hooks to hang the item on the wall and a stand to support it on a desk. In total the item weighs 240g.
The price includes UK taxes and postage and packaging. International shipping is available - email me on firstname.lastname@example.org with your region/country and I'll get back to you with a quote. International delivery fees will have to be paid for by the customer.
Thanks so much for visiting my website, I'd be happy to hear from you!
All of the crochet artwork I make will continue to be one-offs. This is mainly due to Coats Mercer 20 crochet thread no longer being manufactured in the UK so once I've run out of a colour, it's gone, and will be replaced by a different shade or colour and brand. Any Coats Mercer 20 thread available online is most likely to have been in hiding for a very long time. It resurfaces now and again with plenty of keen crocheters keeping an eye on ebay and the like!
