Working the Chart in Filet Crochet
For a 4 dc mesh, starting chain is 136, plus chain 3, (which will count as first dc of first row), chain 2 more (which is the chain-2 for the first open mesh). Begin by working a double crochet in the 9th chain from the hook. Follow chart for placement of solid mesh and open mesh for each row. For a refresher on how to do open and solid mesh, see Basics link below.
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.
