"Daleks in Love" filet crochet  
I had a silly idea while charting out a new dalek pattern and then just had to crochet it.
So, here's my "Daleks in Love" filet crochet doily-thing.

Close up view

Daleks in love in filet crochet

Made with size 10 cotton crochet thread.
Finished size is approximately 26" wide by 17" high (65 cm by 42 cm).
That's a U.S. quarter in the lower right for scale.

Thanks! Filet crochet really isn't all that hard. I'm guessing from your username that you knit - I bet you could use the pattern to knit a dalek scarf! I posted a link to the pattern chart further down in the comments (here)

That's absolutely wonderful! Now I'm just wondering how big a quarter is.

That is gorgeous!

Do you have a pattern for it?
meredeemeredee on September 18th, 2007 12:44 am (UTC)
Ask, and you shall receive:

Dalek pattern
(chart for one dalek - all I did was mirror it and add a heart between them)

That link will open in a new window, though you may have to click on the image to view full size. It should fit on one sheet for easy print out.

I'd love to see what other fans can do with the pattern! I don't knit, but I wonder if it could be used to make a dalek sweater or something...
