This chart can be useful for filet crochet, crocheting with color changes (intarsia) or for cross-stitch. The Printer-Friendly Page has instructions for the first few rows in filet crochet, to get you started.
If working the chart in filet crochet, the starting chain is 91 chains for a 4-dc mesh or 63 chains for a 3-dc mesh. In either case, begin with a dc in the 5th chain from the hook.
