[crochet] Filet Crochet Curtain

Finally finished and blocked the filet crochet curtain and hung it in the bathroom:

Pattern: Bernat Blocks Curtain (The pattern is free but you need to register with the site to view/download it.)

Yarn: Coats & Clark Royale Classic Crochet Thread, Size 10, Ecru colorway

Hook: 1.75 mm

Notes: As you can see, it's not quite wide enough. I'm not really bothered but someone on Ravelry made a nice suggestion that I might try: get some sheer fabric from Joann's and drap a narrow piece over the bar at either end. The should fill in the gaps.

I opted not to crochet loops across the top. Instead, I simply got ring clips (about $7 for a package 6) and a tension rod.

I really do like how this turned out.

And it's a vast improvement from what was there- a pillowcase clipped to the window locks with clothespins. For a year.

We've had 2 pillows (yes full bed-sized pillows) in our basement windows to block out the sun. For over a year. Someday I'll take measurements and go order the shutters I want. :)

Thank you so much for your very clear and close up photos. I was really struggling to understand the directions for these curtains on and just couldn't get it. Saw your close up picture, counted stitches and am on my way! Thank you!
