Pattern Notes

When working fpdc on Set-up Row 2 of the Back, insert hook into the same st that was used for the previous sc from the front to the back behind the post, then from the back to the front through the following sc.

When working the fpdc on Set-up Row 2 of the Fronts, work around the fpdc st from the back.

When working the Lattice Pattern, the fpdc and fptr sts are worked around the sts from the previous RS row. All sc sts are worked into the sc from the previous WS row. So, when working the sc that is between the 2 sets of fpdc or fptr sts, look at the back of the work, sk 2 of the sc from the previous WS row, then work the next sc into the next sc.
