How To Crochet: Chain Loop Mesh StitchBy Robin Beers – 40 Comments
|This lacy stitch is a open crochet stitch made with loops of chains. It is very easy to crochet. You just need to know the single crochet stitch. Here is a refresher on that stitch, see the single crochet tutorial. Use this stitch to make an interesting scarf, a pretty table runner, or even a poncho. The photo at the right is a poncho that I made with this stitch using ribbon yarn. You can also use this stitch for a market bag using cotton yarn!|
Note: If you are left handed, just put your mouse over the photo for a left-handed view.
Start with a foundation row of a multiple of 4 chains, plus 2 extra.
Row 1: Make a single crochet in the 6th chain from the hook.
Skip next 3 chains and make 1 sc in the next chain.
Repeat from * to the end of row 1, turn.
Row 2: **Chain 5.
Make a single crochet in the next 5-ch loop.
Repeat from ** and continue in this pattern across entire row.
Repeat Row 2 until desired length is made.
