Here I am after a not so long break , with the second row of filet crochet.
I am working on this filet crochet pattern
In the last post I stopped with the completed first row . Here is the completed first row
Ch 5 , ( 3 Chains correspond to the first dc of 2nd row , and 2 chains for the open mesh)
Here is what it looks like
Chain 5 (first open mesh made ), then Turn
dc in first dc of the first row ( first open block made)
You can also see how an open mesh is worked over an open mesh of previous row.
Ch-2, dc in next dc forms another open block.
This ( Ch-2, dc over next dc of previous row) is repeated over the entire length to from another row with open block. And the result is ,
Second row completed
As seen in the pattern, there is one solid block in the third row.
A solid block is made up of one closed mesh.
Closed mesh is made up of 3 dc.
Row is started with beg ch-3, ch-2 ,( dc in first dc of previous row, ch-2) 7 times ,
2 dc in the ch-2 space of the open mesh of previous round , dc in next dc, ch 2 ,*( dc in next dc, ch2), repeat from * across,
the last open mesh is finished off by making a dc in 3rd ch of the beg ch-5 of the previous row.
highlighted in blue---- one closed mesh.
one solid block is made
Though the closed mesh is made up of 3 dc , the solid block is made of 4 dc ( 3dc of the closed mesh , 1 dc of the next open mesh).
See how a closed mesh is over an open mesh
Completed Row 3
1. To make first open mesh of Row 2 ( ch - 5)
2. Row 3: First closed mesh made ( 3 dc) ,
Solid Block = One Closed Mesh + 1dc of next open/closed mesh( here next is open mesh) = 4 dc
Note : If you find any errors in the written pattern or anything that you don't understand , please let me know. This is the first time I am attempting to write a pattern.
