Doileys with Netted Border from Tatting and Netting

A couple of weeks ago I flew across country with my husband. We spent much of the time on the flights figuring out instructions for the net edges that I still wanted to make from the book Tatting and Netting. Most of the ones we worked on were made for circular netting and I wanted to do a sample that was made going back and forth in rows. I knew netting and he knew math and between us we were able to figure out instructions for 5 different edges.

On page 134 of Tatting and Netting, there are two Doileys with Netted Borders shown - Nos. 31 and 32.  About a month ago I showed No. 31.  This is how the netting for No. 32 looks.  The photo in the book shows the edge with net embroidery.

If I were to use this edge, I would play with it a bit to get the single small loops more centered with respect to the patterns before it. It seems to me it is more to the right than it should be.
