This super easy beginner mesh stitch perfectly breaks down how easy it can be for you to add a cozy mesh knit to your next project. A mesh knit pattern is great for those spring and summer projects you are working on to really add a slight and airy feeling.

You can incorporate this mesh pattern in a knit scarf, a lovely spring cardigan, or any project that you want that you might wear in the warmer months. But where mesh is most commonly seen is in knitted shawls! This beginner mesh pattern makes it so that any knitter at any level can master this and use it in their next pattern.

A really gorgeous knit, I saw a blanket a friend of mine had draped on her couch and she thought my fascination with its stitch pattern was funny, but I've finally found it! Quick question, by the end of this video the number of stitches has increased from 12 to 13, due to the yo at the end of the first row on the single stitch. How does one account for this?

I love how easy this is. It'd be gorgeous with a thinner yarn for summery items. Can't wait to give this stitch a try.
