Rows 8-97: Repeat Rows 2–7 fifteen times.
Fasten off.
Lattice
Notes: Slip stitches are worked into the chain-spaces of the background to form the surface lines of the lattice. When working a slip stitch into a chain-space, always work to the side of the stitches that are occupying the chain-space. If you are working diagonally to the right, work the slip stitch to the left of the occupying stitches. If you are working diagonally to the left, work the slip stitch to the right of the occupying stitches.
With RS facing, join B with sl st in lower corner ch-sp of foundation ch. Working diagonally across throw, *ch 3, sl st in ch-sp of row above; repeat from * diagonally across throw to the side edge. Rotate throw 1/4 turn, and continue working between * and *, diagonally across throw, from side edge to top edge. Continue working in this fashion, rotating the throw a 1/4 turn each time you reach an edge, and where surface lines cross, instead of ch 3, work ch 1, sl st around surface line, ch 1, sl st in next ch-1 sp of background. Fasten off as needed, and begin again in the next foundation ch-sp, until all diagonal lines have been made.
