The mesh stitch in crochet is great for any crochet 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!

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.
