Filet crochet has a gridlike appearance because it uses only the chain and double crochet stitches. This is a guide about the filet crochet heart pattern.
Filet crochet is usually done with crochet thread. I chose to use yarn because I wanted more coverage than thread would allow. (I bought a green pillow that didn't match my décor as well as I thought it would.) For those of you unfamiliar with filet crochet, all stitches are either a double crochet or a chain and skipped space.
