For a 4 dc mesh, starting chain is 94, plus chain 3, (which will count as first dc of first row). Begin by working a double crochet in the 5th chain from the hook.

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.
