How To Crochet Diamond Mesh Stitch

I love creating easy mesh with both knit and crochet stitches. They are great for warm weather garments but can be used year round! I also find that with crocheted mesh you often create what looks like a knit fabric. The diamond mesh stitch is super easy and I used it on my crocheted Infinite Ways Sarong Pattern.  It makes a really light and open fabric, especially when you use a large hook.  This stitch works great for shawls, scarves, or summer wraps and cover-ups.  You can find the written pattern below as well as a short video tutorial below. I hope you enjoy it!

I used the diamond mesh stitch to create this sarong.
You might remember this other mesh stitch that I used in a blanket sweater – it’s a goodie too!

Diamond Mesh Stitch Pattern

Make a chain in a multiple of 4 + 3

Row 1 Sk 1 ch, sc in next, ch 5, sk 3, sc in next stitch across row, turn

Row 2 Ch 5, sc in each ch 5 space across row to last stitch, sc in sc from previous row, turn

Row 3 *Ch 5, sc in each ch 5 space across row, repeat from * across

Repeat row 3 for the rest of the pattern!

Check out the video below to see exactly how it’s done! I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely a visual learner.

  2. Hi, I’m new here, just found your blog tonight and even though I was going to watch New Girl and finish a few squares for a crochet blanket, I’ve been here instead. All night. And found 14 patterns that go on my “must do” list! Perfectly beautiful and useful patterns that I can’t wait to get to! Thank you for sharing your hard work. <3

    1. Sorry, forgot to answer, but I’ve used this pattern in the past for a shopping bag kind of thing for fruit and such. Although the bag can be used for much more and the stitch can be so different with a thinner yarn and smaller hook. Love yours, though.

  4. Hi Jessica, how do you overlay this diamond mesh as part of a double crochet blanket simultaneously as you work the blanket?
