Has anyone ever made their own chart? I want to take a cross stitch chart and use that as the pattern. How do I figure out the starting chain row as to how many to chain to fit the pattern and have extra for the sides and ends. Hope some one can let me know. Thanks for any info you can offer.

gonna send you to a site that will take a picture you have on machine, and make a graph of it for your use. This might help, I am not a filet fan, so can't really figger out the schematics of the pattern. If you can do this, I think that is super smart, and good luck with the project.
I think you would have to decide how big you want your project, and let that dictate how many chains are actually in each square for the filet. I didn't say that well, but usually are 2 chains in each block and 2 dc over the chains below.
I have a book how to do filet, do you understand how filet works, think you read chart from left to right, and then turn, and opposite going back? PM me and we can talk further.

go here and see about getting a graph made, and then see how much more you can accomplish, a new experience.

Thanks for the reply. Yes I have done the filet work before. Just wanted to try something different. As I can't find a pattern I want to do for a doily.

Hello Ice Cream,
Have you tried the old crochet magazine Magic Crochet, they always had such beautiful doilies.

Thanks to both of you for your offers and ideas. Really don't know what I want to do. Just have to keep looking until something hits me in the head and that will be the one I guess.
