The first of several Netted Fringe patterns is found on page 109 of Tatting and Netting, by Butterick Publishing Company (published in 1895).
Once the heading is finished, the piece of netting is done in rows. The rows are made in such a way that a tube of netting is formed. What looks like rows of large and small diamonds is created by laying the front and back of the tube of netting on top of each other.
I thought it would be harder to make, but I found the directions understandable once I started. I did have a problem getting it to starch so it looked the way it did in the photo in the book. I wonder if I could make the stitch without the heading.
