From Crochet at About.com: Daisy Square Chart For Filet Crochet or Cross Stitch Printing Page

I recharted, adapted a bit from the original. -- Sandi Marshall
Chart the design on this page is based on is from The Ladies' World Filet Crochet Book, No. 2, published in the year 1916.

To print the chart only: For those planning to use the chart in ways other than for filet crochet, who don't need the additional instructions below, to view the chart on a page by itself, "right-click" on the chart (click anywhere on the chart with the right-hand side mouse button) and then choose "View Image" (exact wording may vary). Print the chart out from that page. Another option if printing from this page is to choose "print one page only" from your printer choices.


Working the Chart in Filet Crochet
For a 4 dc mesh, starting chain is 76, 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. First row is solid double crochet all the way across. 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.
