Each solid square is equal to 4 dc. Each open square is equal to (1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc). The dc at the end of each square also counts as the first dc of the next square. For example, a solid square followed by an open square is 4 dc, ch 2, 1 dc. Solid squares count as “solid mesh” and open squares count as “open mesh”.
Tip: When finished with one ball/cone of yarn, attach the next ball/cone only at the beginning or ending of a row to aid in the weaving of the loose end.
Starting with Row 1 of chart, using Stitch Guide, ch 489, sk 8 ch, dc in next ch (first open mesh created). Continue following chart to create remaining rows. At end of row 180, fasten off.
