Easy and Quick Crochet Mesh Stitch Pattern

The mesh stitch in crochet is great for any yarn project where you want to create a lacy look. The mesh stitches are also known as filet crochet, which is made up of open squares and filled squares.

Open stitches using filet crochet are most commonly used for doilies, tablecloths, and home decor projects as well as wearables. Speaking of wearables, I am currently making a mesh stitch scarf using this stitch, so be on the lookout for a new pattern soon!

The Yarn & Hook for The Mesh Stitch

You will need a few supplies to get started with making a mesh stitch in crochet, such as yarn (any brand and weight will work) and the appropriate size crochet hook according to the yarn package you have chosen.

I used a worsted weight yarn with a size 4.50 mm hook, but any size hook and yarn will work for this particular tutorial, as mentioned before. I linked up the yarn Skein Tones from Lion Brand and my Tulip crochet hook I used below.

Can I Crochet The Mesh Stitch as a Beginner?

Yes! The mesh stitch uses basic crochet stitches like the double crochet and chain stitch, which are some of the first stitches new crocheters learn.

Once you have those two stitches mastered, then you are ready to crochet the mesh stitch using the tutorial below.
