GAUGE: 12 sts and 5 rows in pattern = 1”. CHECK YOUR GAUGE: Use any size hook to obtain required gauge.
space: Dc in dc, ch 2, skip 2 sts. block: Dc in dc, dc in next 2 dc or 2 dc in next ch-2 space. double space: Dc in dc, ch 5, skip next 2 ch-3 spaces. lacet: Dc in dc, ch 3, skip next 2 sts, slip st in next st, ch 3, skip next 2 sts. Increase blocks at beginning of row: Ch 2 for each additional block, ch 3 (counts as first dc). Increase blocks at end of row: [Tr in base of last st] 3 times for each additional block. Decreasing at beginning of row: Slip st in first dc, [sl st in next 3 sts] for each block decrease, ch 3 (counts as first dc) to begin next row. Decreasing at end of row: Work across following chart to first dc of first block to be decreased, turn leaving remaining sts unworked, ch 3 (counts as first dc), to begin next row.
Ch 75. Row 1: Dc in 4th ch from hook, dc in each ch across, turn—73 dc; 24 blocks. Row 2: Ch 8 (counts as ch 5 and dc), dc in 4th ch from hook, dc in next 4 ch (2 blocks), *dc in next dc, ch 2, skip next 2 sts; repeat from * 23 times, dc in next dc, [tr in base of last st made] 6 times (2 blocks), turn—24 spaces and 4 blocks. Rows 3-110: Work in blacks, spaces, double spaces and lacets following chart. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
ABBREVIATIONS: ch = chain; dc = double crochet; mm = millimeters; rnd = round; st(s) = stitch (es);  = work directions in brackets the number of times specified, * or ** = repeat whatever follows the * or ** as indicated.
