This is my first filet crochet piece.
In retrospect, I wish I’d done the big version of the chart, and with an I hook, so I could do a smaller border around the outside. I had chosen to do the version of filet crochet where each group of three is meshed together (for example two “blocks” is actually 5 stitches, instead of using 3 stitches per block) so it came out smaller than expected.
I realized I’d need a big edging to make this blanket big enough for swaddling. I went with the edging from Oops-A-Daisy from Leisure Arts #4623, Circular Baby Afghans, though I had to fudge the number of repeats to fit my smaller blanket. I think it works alright. :)
As for the Rassilon reference, you can check out the Wikipedia article to figure out just what sort of nerdiness I crocheted into this blanket. It’s very possible that the recipients of this blanket didn’t realize just how dorky it is, and may not even get the reference even if I point it out, but I’m amused and that’s really all that matters.
