This week the Vandyke border has 8 squares in the border, 3 points on each side of the Vandykes and needs 2 Vandykes to create the last vertical edge.
First Vandyke with straight, vertical side
1. Net 2 knots in the foundation loop. (2 loops in the row)
2. Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (3 loops in the row)
3. Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (4 loops in the row)
4. Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (5 loops in the row)
5. Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (6 loops in the row)
6. Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (7 loops in the row)
7. Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (8 loops in the row)
8. Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (9 loops in the row)
9. Net 1 knot in each loop. (9 loops in the row)
10. Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (10 loops in the row)
11. Net 1 knot in each loop. (10 loops in the row)
12. Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (11 loops in the row)
13. Net 1 knot in each loop. (11 loops in the row)
14. Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (12 loops in the row)
15. Net 1 knot in each loop for 9 loops; turn and net back across those loops. (9 loops in the row)
Repeating Vandyke
1015 Repeat instructions to create new Vandyke.
Final Vandykes
1. Net 1 knot in each loop except for the last loop, net 2 knots in the last loop. (10 loops in the row)
2. Net 1 knot in each loop. (10 loops in the row)
3. Net 1 knot in each loop. (10 loops in the row)
4. Net 1 knot in each loop. (10 loops in the row)
5. Net 1 knot in each loop except the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together. (9 loops in the row)
6. Net 1 knot in each loop for 6 loops, turn the netting and begin the next row. (6 loops in the row)
7. Net 1 knot in each loop except the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together. (5 loops in the row)
8. Net 1 knot in each loop. (5 loops in the row)
9. Net 1 knot in each loop except the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together. (4 loops in the row)
10. Net 1 knot in each loop. (4 loops in the row)
11. Net 1 knot in each loop except the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together. (3 loops in the row)
A. To find how many final Vandykes are needed:
 If the number of squares in the border is less than or equal to 2 times the number of points 1 then you have just 1 final Vandyke.
 If the number of squares in the border is greater than 2 times the number of points 1 then you need more than 1 final Vandyke.
B. To determine how many more Vandykes are needed:
 Subtract 2 times the number of points  1 (for this example 2 times 3 is 6, subtract 1 from 6 = 5).
 Subtract that number from the number of squares in the border (for this example: 85 = 3).
 Divide the result by 2 times the number of points. If the answer is not a whole number, round up to the next whole number. (for this example: 3 divided by (2 times 3) or, in other words, 3 divided by 6 equals .5 which is rounded up to 1).
 The whole number is how many more Vandykes are needed. (for this example the answer is 1).
C. Total number of final Vandykes needed:
 Take the number just calculated of how many more Vandykes are needed (for this example: 1).
 Add 1 to that number to find the total number of final Vandykes (for this example 1 + 1 = 2).
D. To determine which of the 4 types of instructions to use for the final Vandykes:
 Double the number of points along one side of the Vandyke (for this example the answer is 6).
 Take the answer from B4 (for this example that answer is 1).
 Multiple the answer from D1 by the answer from D2.
 Add the answer from B1 to the answer from D3 (for this example add 5+6=11).
 Subtract the number of squares in the border from the result (for this example 118 = 3).
 The resulting number will be 0, 1, an even number greater than 0, or an odd number greater than 1.
E. Generic instructions for the final Vandykes
If your resulting number is an odd number greater than 1, the rows are as follows:
X = the answer from D6, subtract 1, divide by 2 (for this example 31=2, 2/2=1, X=1).
N = the number of points (for this example 3)
