I totally forgot to post this! I’ll post the 5th stitch next week and then November’s stitch the week after that. Our fourth stitch is the Filet Mesh Stitch. This stitch is great for adding open sections to your projects. It’s sturdier than most “lacy” stitches and is quite distinctive. It’s great for light throws, market bags, and shawls.
The Filet Mesh Stitch has a multiple of 2, so any even number will work.
1. DC in the 6th ch from hook.
*Ch 1, sk 1, DC in next ch.*
Repeat across. Turn.
2. Ch 4 (Counts as 1 DC + 1 ch)
Sk 1, DC in next DC,
*ch 1, DC in next DC.*.
Repeat 2 until your piece reaches desired size.
