How to Crochet the String Network Stitch Written Instructions
This pattern uses a stitch multiple of 4 + 1, + 5.
For example, you could start with a chain of 10, 14, 18... 38, 42, 46... any number that is a multiple of 4, plus 6.
This pattern features a two-row repeat.
The gauge will be determined by your yarn and hook choices, as well as your personal tension.
TIP: Put a stitch marker in the 4th ch from the hook before making the first st in Row 1 and Row 3. This marks the top of the "first dc" of the row, making it easier to find when working the next row.
