OK so I'm just now finding this pattern :). I am an experienced crocheter,,, (is that a word??) and I followed the instructions...mine didn't look anything like this picture. First I did row 4 in the "chain 1 space" ripped that out & did it in the actual chain... this picture (when I enlargen it) looks to have another row added in between. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks for any help.

I am so confused :) which is very easy for me. I am following the pattern but mine looks nothing like the picture. Mine looks more like a mesh style than the solid one in the picture. Am I doing something wrong? Thank you so much for you help with this and for posting your pattern for us to use.
