Simple but oh! so cute mesh stitch pattern

This stitch pattern is so simple and easy to remember - you can knit it anywhere anytime. But the texture it creates is nice and airy. It will make any garment look stylish and carefree, like this stunning sweater created by Alexander Wang.

You can make something similar (or even better, who knows :-)) if you follow these instructions:

Cast on an even number of stitches. Add 2 more selvage stitches if you want to make a nice-looking edge.

Right side of the pattern

Row 1 (right side): *1 yarn over, knit 2 stitches together through front loop*, repeat from * to * as necessary.

Row 2 and every wrong side row: purl all stitches.

Row 3 (right side): * knit 2 stitches together through front loop, 1 yarn over*, repeat from * to * as necessary.

Repeat rows 1-4 till necessary for completing your project.

You can also work according to the chart available at

Wrong side of the pattern

Needles: US size 6 (4 mm).

Good luck with your project.
