The Lace Mesh Stitch Pattern is a lovely, textured stitch pattern that is super easy to knit.
In fact, the stitch pattern is knitted over just 4 rows which makes it very easy to memorize.
This simple-to-knit stitch pattern will look great in almost any knitting project.
It is not identical on the back side, so it is not a fully reversible stitch pattern. However, as the reverse side is quite decorative, it still lends itself well to projects where you have two public sides.
Examples on such projects are baby blankets and scarves. In addition, the stitch would look great in a nice summer top.
Furthermore, this is a great pattern for novice knitters who would like to dip their toe into lace knitting. Actually, it is a great pattern for practicing slipping stitches.
Finally, you will sometimes see this particular stitch pattern also referred to as the Irish Mesh Stitch or the Irish Eyelet Mesh Stitch.
