Increase Multiple Spaces at the Beginning of a Row in Filet Crochet

Increase spaces and blocks to make filet crochet interesting. To increase more than one space at the beginning of a filet crochet row, you just have to know how many increase chain stitches to make for each additional space.

1

When you reach the end of the row that precedes the row you’re going to increase, turn your work.

You position your work just like you do to start a regular new row.

2

Chain (ch) 2.

This step creates the base of the first increase space.

3

Chain 3 more for each additional space required.

The example in these steps adds one more space for a total of two increases.

4

Chain 3 more.

You create the turning chain of the row’s first double crochet (dc) stitch.

5

Chain 2 more.

This step creates the top of the first space.

6

Double crochet in the eighth chain from the hook.

7

Chain 2 for the top of the second increase space.

Skip the next 2 chain stitches.

8

Double crochet in the next chain stitch.

You have now increased the row by two spaces.

9

Chain 2 to make the top of the next space.

Skip the next 2 stitches.

10

Double crochet in the next double crochet stitch.

This step makes the next space of the row.

11

Repeat the preceding two steps across the row.

Complete a row of spaces.
