Special rows are used in this pattern.

Random basketweave (RBW): Ch2 (does not count as st), hdc in first st. Alternate between 2 fpdc sts and 2 bpdc sts randomly until the end of the row, hdc in last st. You can use a coin flipper to choose whether to do fpdc or bpdc next. I associated bpdc with tails and fpdc with heads.

Inverse basketweave (IBW): Ch 2 (does not count as st), hdc in first st. If the stitch in the previous row was a fpdc, work a bpdc, and vice versa. hdc in last st.

Every odd numbered row (1, 3, 5 …) is worked in Random basketweave (RBW).
Every even numbered row (2, 4, 6 …) is worked in Inverse basketweave (IBW).

For a basic corset, you can replace RBW/IBW with [Ch2, hdc along, turn] and replace all fp/bp dcs with hdcs.

Simple decrease row: Work the appropriate basketweave along *until 2 sts before the side marker. Work 2 fp/bphdctog (fp or bp depending on the row)*. Repeat ** at the second side marker.

Simple increase row: Work the appropriate basketweave along *until 2 sts before the side marker. Work 2 fp/bpdctog in each of the next 2 sts (fp or bp depending on the row)*. Repeat ** at the second side marker.

Chest decrease row: Work the appropriate basketweave along *until 4 sts before the breast marker. Work 4 fp/bpdctog over the next 8 sts (fp or bp depending on the row)*. Repeat ** at the second breast marker.
