Chochet Fillet Pentacle

I have created this pattern with a pentacle. It's size will deppend on the yarn and the hook you'll use... I've made it using a large rustic yarn and a hook number 6 (in Brazil), it's one of the biggest. I can't remember for sure because it's been sometime, but It seems the final measures were 50 cm x 50 cm.
I started making 133 chain plus 3 to loop. Then I made 2 other chan and a double chochet in the 8th chain to form a small square, then repeated 2 chain and one double crochet until I've made 44 small squares. The black blocks represents four double crochet...
It's my first time trying to write and explain a pattern in English, so please forgive me if it's not understandable... I'll try to learn more of it for the next times.

And here's a picture of the finalized project.

You do beautiful work. Filet crochet is so rare these days. I have a beautiful piece of filet done by my great grandmother on our wall. It's huge, about 3x4 feet. I think it's an amazing piece of art and also a wonderful piece of family history.
