Working the Chart in Filet Crochet
Starting Chain: For a 4 dc mesh, starting chain is 79, plus chain 3, (which will count as first dc of first row), for a total starting chain of 82 chains. Begin by working a double crochet in the 5th chain from the hook. Follow chart for placement of solid mesh and open mesh for each row. 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.
