Weave in loose ends as work pro­gresses. Each chain in a chain-2 space counts as a stitch when skip­ping stitches. The graph shows the stitches to work for each row. Odd-num­bered right-side rows are read from right to left. Even-num­bered wrong-side rows are read from left to right. When the first sym­bol of a row is a mesh, work a be­gin­ning mesh. When the first sym­bol of a row is an in­crease, work an in­creas­ing be­gin­ning mesh. When the last sym­bol of a row is an in­crease, work an in­creas­ing end­ing mesh. Join with slip stitch un­less other­wise stated.
