The mesh stitch is an economical way to use one ball of fancy yarn. The scarf can be spread out or scrunched up, which gives a variety of looks. I really liked the scarf by lilibethsgarden, but I didn’t want to do row after row of “double triple crochet.” The Crochet Stitch Bible provided a great alternate gridded mesh. The pattern uses an easy two row repeat with double crochet and chains. It is written with US crochet terms.
About 9.5″ wide x 68″ long
To Fit: One size fits most
Gauge/Tension: Not important
Crochet Hook: US Size H-8 (5mm)
Yarn: 250 yds fingering weight yarn
- 1 ball Done Roving brand Silky-Criations (70% baby alpaca [cria]; 30% silk). 3 oz / 85 g. 250 yds. Color: Thistle (purple/green).
Notions: tapestry needle for weaving in yarn ends; scissors
This mesh is a (multiple of 3 sts) plus 1 st, then add 4 for foundation chain. I used 16 x 3 = 48, plus 1 = 49, plus 4 for foundation = 53 ch. Pattern uses the American double crochet (dc) / British treble crochet.
Row 1: Dc in 8th chain from hook, *ch 2, skip 2 ch, 1 dc in next ch; repeat from * across row to end. Turn.
Row 2: Ch 5, skip 1st dc and 2 ch; *1 dc in next dc, ch 2, skip 2 ch; repeat from * across row to end. Turn.
Repeat Row 2 until you are almost out of yarn.
Fasten off, leaving a 6-inch tail. Weave in all ends.
