A metamorphosis from ordinary afghans occurs when you create the Pink Butterfly Afghan using filet crochet. Filet crochet is a fabulous decorative technique and it's not just for doilies anymore! Filet crochet is worked from a square-grid chart; pictures, motifs or patterns are created by combining solid and open-space blocks. The Pink Butterfly afghan's finished size is 41"w x 52"h, excluding fringe (104 cm x 134.5 cm). Choose medium weight yarn in one color and a crochet hook in Size J (6 mm). The suggested skill level to complete this project is rated as easy. Originally published in Leaflet #5584 Filet Afghans.
