How to Crochet: Offset Fish Net StitchBy Robin Beers – 11 Comments
|This lacy stitch is a open crochet stitch like a fish net with slanted rows. It looks more complicated than it really is – simply rows of triple crochet (also known as treble crochet). For a refresher on that stitch, see the triple crochet tutorial. Use this stitch to make an interesting scarf or a pretty table runner. I use cotton yarn in a light weight (3) in this tutorial, but you can use worsted weight yarn or any weight in between if you like. With these fancy stitches, the thinner yarn shows up the most detail.|
Start with a row of single crochet in an even number. Add 3 for the foundation row.
Note: If you are left handed, just put your mouse over the photo for a left-handed view.
Row 1: Triple Crochet in the 5th chain from the hook.
Skip 1 chain and make 1 tr in the next chain. Repeat across the entire row.
Row 2: Chain 4.
Skip first tr and make tr in next chain space.
Skip next tr and make tr in next chain space. Continue in this pattern across entire row.
End the row with a tr in the 1st chain of the chain 4 from the previous row.
Repeat row 2 until you have made the desired amount of rows. Make sure that you have the same amount of tr in each row as you progress.
