From the pattern:
This wavy mesh curtain offers light and privacy for your home. It can easily be made wider or longer if needed: every 10 additonal stitches equals 2½”, and each vertical repeat of the pattern is about 3”. If you are feeling particularly ambitious, turn it into a bed skirt - just insert elastic into the finished hem so that it snugs up to your box spring. A slightly loosened gauge gives the lace a more airy quality.
