Filet Beach Dress Crochet Pattern
Geometric shapes and intricate filet crochet make this a real show-stopper garment!
'Fortune favours the bold’, cries the common adage, probably-not-but-maybe referring to those who dare to wear this amazing, showstopping filet beach dress! Its catwalk-esque style, however, is not reflected in the price – the Scheepjes Sugar Rush yarn used here is amazing value – you can hook this tunic up for under £24.
At the beach, throw on this crochet tunic on over a bikini for an instant, quick-dry cover up, or flex your fashion muscles by teaming it with a mini dress. Its geometric filet pattern looks great highlighted by a dark colour, while the green-yellow colour is begging for bright accessories!

- Scheepjes Maxi Sugar Rush (100% mercerised cotton, 50g/280m) Green-Yellow (245)
