Day 224 and Graduation
Unlike knitting, crochet stitches can grow without changing the size of the tool you're using.
More chains, and taller stitches gradually create a wider and wider mesh design. It symmetrically decreases again on the opposite side.
I used stitches in this order and then reversed them for symmetry:
Single crochet across.
Half double Crochet across.
Double Crochet and one chain filet pattern.
Treble Crochet and two chain filet pattern.
Double Treble and three chain filet pattern.
You have to fudge the ends a little bit since the filet patterns don't all have the same number of stitches per repeat, but the large chain areas at each end make it very easy to do.
