Tunisian crochet mesh stitch is my new favorite stitch ever. Why, you might ask? Here are my reasons:
It’s turbo fast. This is one of the quickest crochet stitches I know how to do.
It’s super easy.
It is gorgeous!
It’s really versatile. It can be colorful or plain, and it can transform into nearly any kind of project. So far I’ve used it to make hats, scarves, cowls, fingerless gloves, baby projects, pouches, trim, beadwork, placemats, headbands, dishcloths and pouches — and I’m not finished yet! I have so many more ideas for this stitch…and I bet you will too, once you start messing around with it…
…but don’t take my word for it. Take a look at a few of my project photos and see what you think:
See what I mean? Isn’t it a fabulous crochet stitch?
