I'm going to include 2 different patterns once again, this time for the fourth Basic Vandyke with Two Final Vandykes. They have a different number of squares in the border and a different number of points on the sides of the Vandykes. The first pattern has 23 squares in the border and 7 points on the sides. The second pattern has 13 squares in the border and 6 points along the Vandykes. The reason they are both included in this post is that they both have 2 final Vandykes and they also have the same type of instructions used in creating those final Vandykes.

**The first example**(23 squares in the border and 7 loops along the points):

**First Vandyke with straight, vertical side**

If you would like to know the math involved, here it is.

First example: Squares in the border = 23, Points along the edge of each Vandyke = 7

Second example: Squares in the border = 13, Points along the edge of each Vandyke = 6

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.
- (For the first example: number of squares in the border 23 and number of points is 7, then 2 times 7 = 14, subtract 1 = 13. Since 23 is greater than 13 we will need more than 1 Vandyke.)
- (For the second example: number of squares in the border 13 and number of points is 6, then 2 times 6 = 12, subtract 1 = 11. Since 13 is greater than 11 we will need more than 1 Vandyke.)

B.

**To determine how many more Vandykes are needed:**- Calculate 2 times the number of points - 1 (for the first example: 2 times 7 is 14, subtract 1 from 14 = 13; for the second example: 2 times 6 is 12, subtract 1 from 12 = 11).
- Subtract that number from the number of squares in the border (for the first example: 23-13 = 10; for the second example: 13-11 = 2).
- 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 the first example: 10 divided by (2 times 7) or, in other words, 10 divided by 14 equals .86 which is rounded up to 1; for the second example: 2 divided by (2 times 6) or, in other words, 2 divided by 12 equals .17 which is rounded up to 1).
- The whole number is how many more Vandykes are needed. (for the first example: the answer is 1; for the second 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 the first example: 1; for the second example: 1).
- Add 1 to that number to find the total number of final Vandykes (for the first example: 1 + 1 = 2; for the second 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 the first example: the answer is 14; for the second example: the answer is 12).
- Take the answer from B4 (for the first example: that answer is 1; for the second example: that answer is 1).
- Multiple the answer from D1 by the answer from D2. (for the first example: the answer is 1*14=14; for the second example: the answer is 1*12=12)
- Add the answer from B1 to the answer from D3 (for the first example: add 13+14=27; for the second example: add 11+12=23).
- Subtract the number of squares in the border from the result (for the first example: 27-23 = 4; for the second example: 23-13 = 10).
- The answer 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 even number greater than 0, the rows are as follows:

X = the answer from D6, divide by 2 (for the first example: 4, 4/2=2, X=2; for the second example: 10, 10/2=5, X=5).

N = the number of points (for the first example: 7; for the second example: 6)

- net X pair(s) of Increase and Plain rows,
- followed by and (N - X) pair(s) of Decrease and Plain rows - the final Plain row leaves the last N loops without a knot,
- turn netting and net (N - 1) pair(s) of Decrease and Plain rows,
- followed by 1 Decrease row.
