The Single Crochet Mesh stitch has a grid like appearance, but unlike the Double Crochet mesh, the grid is less apparent.

This means that the stitches are much closer together giving you are more solid like fabric.  This is an easy crochet stitch to work.  It uses single crochet and chain stitch.  It is also a wonder one row repeat.  It is very easy to catch on to.

This stitch is versatile when you comes to its use.  You may wish to use it in a delicate baby blanket or in a summer top!

Swatch of the single crochet mesh stitch


For this tutorial today I will be using a small amount of Cotton Aran by Paintbox Yarns. It is an aran weight yarn. 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.

Don’t forget to check out the video tutorial below!

The Single Crochet Mesh Stitch:

This stitch is worked in rows in this tutorial.  At the end of each row you will need to chain one and turn your work. The chain one does not count as a stitch.

To begin, make a slip knot and then chain your desired number of chains.  For this stitch pattern you will need an even number of stitches for your foundation chain.

For my swatch I will be making a foundation chain of 20 chain stitches.

Row One:

Single crochet into the second chain from your hook, * chain one, skip the next stitch, single crochet into the next stitch.

Repeat from * across.  Turn.

Row Two:

Chain one, single crochet in the first stitch, *chain one, skip the next chain one space, single crochet in the next single crochet stitch.

Repeat from * across.  Turn.

And that’s it!

For the rest of the pattern, simply repeat row two.  Fasten off and weave in your ends.
