Filet Pattern

Ch 1, sk next ch, dc in next dc.
Inc 1: Ch 1, dc in first dc of V-st, V-st in ch-1 sp of V-st, dc in 2nd dc of V-st, ch 1.
Inc 2: Dc in first dc of V-st, (ch 1, dc, V-st, dc, ch 1) in ch-1 sp of V-st, dc in 2nd dc of V st.

Pattern Notes

All rnds end by sl stitching to the first dc of the first V-st, then into the ch-1 sp of the same V-st, followed by a turn. Turning at the ends of rows prevents bias in the fabric. After rnd 1, all rnds begin with a V-st. When working the first dc after the initial V-st, you will be inserting hook under the sl st just made and the top of the dc of prev row.
All rnds begin at the V-st of right sleeve on back. On odd numbered rows, first V-st is followed by right sleeve, then Front, where the center diamond panel is located. On even numbered rows, first V-st is followed by back, where there is no center panel.
Be sure that there is a ch-1 before and after Inc 1.
For the sake of simplicity, stitch counts are calculated as if the front is the same as back. The diamond panels on front will have a slightly different count, but are equivalent in size.
