### Circle of netting - created using rows, not rounds

This month I've been working on creating net circles in rows and figuring out how many loops they have around the edge. This particular piece of netting has a total of 24 rows (the first row of knots was attached to the foundation loop and has been undone), 256 knots, and 35 points around the circumference where a knot could be tied.

From one perspective this circle looks like it has been done in diamond-mesh netting; from another angle, though, it looks like square-mesh netting. Which is it? That depends on your perspective since square-mesh netting is diamond-mesh netting turned slightly and pulled taut.

This circle can be used as the base of a bag or the center of a hairnet.

Row Instructions
1 Tie thread onto foundation loop, net 6 loops into foundation loop. (6 loops in the row)
2 Net 1 knot in each loop except the last loop, net 2 knots the last loop. (7 loops in the row)
3 Net 1 knot in each loop except the last loop, net 2 knots the last loop. (8 loops in the row)
4 Net 1 knot in each loop except the last loop, net 2 knots the last loop. (9 loops in the row)
5 Net 1 knot in each loop except the last loop, net 2 knots the last loop. (10 loops in the row)
6 Net 1 knot in each loop except the last loop, net 2 knots the last loop. (11 loops in the row)
7 Net 1 knot in each loop except the last loop, net 2 knots the last loop. (12 loops in the row)
8-18 Net 1 knot in each loop. (12 loops in the row)
19 Net 1 knot in each loop except the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together. (11 loops in the row)
20 Net 1 knot in each loop except the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together. (10 loops in the row)
21 Net 1 knot in each loop except the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together. (9 loops in the row)
22 Net 1 knot in each loop except the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together. (8 loops in the row)
23 Net 1 knot in each loop except the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together. (7 loops in the row)
24 Net 1 knot in each loop except the last 2 loops, net those 2 loops together. (6 loops in the row)
