Point russe? Anyone? Chart reading Point de resille
I have bought a book about crocheting, with some points (?) and different stitches, and there it is: Point russe (russian point)

It says to work one row, then cut off the yarn and go back to the start of row to continue. Except if you're working in the round.
Has anyone done this technique?

And then, there's another technique, and I can't figure out how to read that chart! (Even with written instruction, I just can't get it)

The dark dots on the chart symbolize slip stitches. The open dots are chains. So, slip stitch 3 stitches to the top of the point and then chain per the chart.

Well, but normally the charts are square (I don't know how to say it), and I don't know in what direction I should go from the starting point.

This is either:

a) worked in the round, thus you are always going in one direction

or
B) when you finish a row, you cut the thread and return to the beginning and work the next row in the same direction.

Judging by the chart is it is being worked in the round, as they show a slip-stitch fastening the base row together.

The bottom of the chart is your starting chain. The dark circle is where you slip stitch into the first chain - completing that round.

To start the second round, you simply chain 4 and single crochet into the third chain of your starting chain. You'd then chain 3, skip two chains and sc into the next.

To close the second round, you slip stitch into the first chain you made at the beginning of the second round -- and slip stitch into the next two chains of round two.

You are now in the center of the first loop you made on round two.

Round 3 starts with chain 4, single crochet into the next loop from the second round. You close round 3 the same as round 2.

Hope that helps more.

Thank you, that makes things a little more clear. But if I understand correctly, this is worked in the round?

EDIT: Oops, Mario already stated it being worked in the round... my bad.
Thank you very much for the detailed instruction Inis!
