Mock Mesh Stitch Tutorial

Mock Mesh Stitch on a Knitting Loom

Mesh Stitch

The Mock Mesh Stitch pattern is an easy lace stitch that is simple enough for beginners. It can be a bit tricky at first but once you get the concept you’re on your way. As always this post includes text, pictures and a video tutorial.

During my research I came across a loom knit version by Suz from . She created her version of the stitch by starting the pattern like a mock crochet and then knitting every other stitch. I liked the idea but decided I would tweak the pattern and the name.

Flat Version

Multiple of 3 – Plus Edges

The way you start the pattern, your edges and your cast-off will depend on your project and so I won’t go over that. If you’re interested in what I do you can take a look at my post and video: HERE .

Remember you are not counting the edges.

OK Let’s Start

Step 1: Knit Pegs 1 and 2 (only in the beginning)

Step 2: Go Back Wrap Peg 1

Step 3: Skip Peg 2

Step 4: Wrap Peg 3

Step 5: Knit-off Pegs 1 and 3


Peg 3 is now your new Peg 2. You will repeat the process starting with Step 2.

When you’re ready to turn again you will start with step 1.

As always I recommend watching the video completely from beginning to the very end and making a swatch before starting any project with this stitch pattern. Although very simple you don’t want to get over-confident and mess up your favorite yarn. It’s a short video watch it twice if necessary.

    Thanks, this is what I was looking for! I can see possibilities of using this stitch to make the base for a plaid fabric as it simulates the crochet mesh that tartan patterns I have just purchased use. By making the mesh in the horizontal colours of the blanket, on the loom, the vertical strips can be woven through it making the plaid.
    My looming group will be estatic about that possibility when we discuss our next charity blanket at our next meeting.
