The double crochet mesh stitch is an each crochet stitch pattern. It features a lacy grid like appearance.
The double crochet mesh stitch is commonly featured in filet crochet designs. As the double crochets are worked over top of one another, despite the fabric being quite open and lacy, it is fairly strong as well.
This stitch is commonly used in lacy designs such as summer tops, and lace table cloths and runners. I have used this stitch in the past interspersed between rows of single crochet stitches to make a Sturdy Mesh Market Bag Crochet Pattern.

For this tutorial I will be using the Caron x Pantone yarn by Yarnspirations along with a 6 mm crochet hook. The hook shown here and in the video below is a wooden streamline hook by Furls Crochet. However you may use any hook and yarn combination you choose.
Double Crochet Mesh Stitch:

To begin, make a slip knot and then chain your desired number of chains. For this stitch pattern you will need an odd number of stitches plus three for your foundation chain.
For my swatch I will be making a foundation chain of 20 chain stitches.
Double crochet into the sixth chain from your hook, * chain one, skip the next chain, double crochet into the next chain.
Repeat from * across. Turn.
Chain four, skip the first double crochet and chain one space, * Double crochet into the next double crochet, chain one, skip the next chain one space.
Repeat from * across, skip the next chain stitch, double crochet into the next chain stitch.
And that’s it!
For the rest of the pattern, simply repeat row two. Fasten off and weave in your ends.
