Knitting your Filet Crochet?

I've mentioned Knitting Daily before. I love receiving this newsletter in my daily emails. "It's Not just for Knitters Anymore". Sure, there are photos of great knitted sweaters, scarves, socks; and knitting patterns for sale. That's just inspiration, "I love those sleeves, I could do that in crochet by..." "I love the fit of that sweater, I need to adapt a crochet pattern to that shape". The newsletter is packed with information gauge, drape, fitting, blocking,...all things that we need to think about in our crocheted garments.
In today's issue there's a pattern for a blouse inspired by fashions of the 1940's, and the yoke of the piece is knitted to look like filet crochet!
