Filet Crochet Help:

Working the Chart in Filet Crochet
For a 4 dc mesh, total starting chain: 120 chains; that's a beginning chain of 115, plus chain 3, (which will count as first dc of first row), plus chain 2 (which is the chain-2 of the first open mesh). Begin by working a double crochet in the 9th chain from the hook (first open mesh made).

Chart is worked starting at the bottom right; work first row right to left. Second row is worked left to right. Continue alternating row directions in this same manner, following chart.

I recharted the "Two Rabbits with Easter Egg" Chart due to poor quality of original 1920 chart when scanned. Chart is from Filet Crochet & Cross Stitch, Book 7, created by Hugo Kirchmaier, published in the year 1920.
