When I made a generic pattern for a square of Square Diamond Netting, I was delighted to find that I needed just one pattern. Whether you wanted to make an even or an odd number of small squares along the side, either could be accomplished with the same pattern.
No matter how many small squares you want along the side of the finished square, here are the instructions.
wrapped long loop
Wrap the yarn once around the mesh stick by putting it across the front of the mesh stick, around the mesh stick, and up the back side of the mesh stick. Then tie the netting knot in the usual way.
long loop in a long loop
Remove the mesh stick if necessary. Tie the netting knot so the bottom of the long loop is touching the top of the mesh stick.
long loop in a short loop
Tie the knot at the bottom of the short loop by gradually pulling the thread slightly upwards not downwards when ending the netting knot.
DO NOT have the bottom of the short loop touch the top of the mesh stick.
short loop in a short loop
Pull short loop down so the bottom of the short loop is touching the top of the mesh stick. Tie the netting knot in the regular way.
