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!
