Crochet Corner to Corner Mesh Stitch – Free Pattern

Last Updated on January 21, 2024

I’m continuing my journey in creating more different C2C stitches, and today I’m sharing the crochet Corner to Corner Mesh Stitch.

The C2C Mesh stitch is fun and super easy, it is a bit similar to the C2C Moss stitch since it’s also using just chain and single crochet stitches. 

In this tutorial we will make a washcloth using this stitch, you will find both a video tutorial and written instructions.

Corner to Corner Mesh Stitch – A Different Corner to Corner Crochet Stitch

When the crochet Mesh stitch is worked from corner to corner, it creates a nice texture, subtle diagonal lines.

The Mesh crochet stitch is very simple, it uses only chains and a single crochet stitch. While the single crochet is separated by chains and is worked into each other.

The corner to corner Mesh stitch is very repetitive and easy, it’s perfect if you are looking for a mindless crochet project.

Mesh Stitch vs Moss Stitch

These two stitches have a similar name, and are also very similar in their stitch pattern. Both stitches also when worked in C2C method create a wonderful texture that is great for blankets and dishcloths.

Both the Moss stitch and the Mesh stitch are using only single crochet and chains, while the single crochet stitches are separated by chains.

The difference is that in the Moss stitch the single crochet is worked into the chain spaces, and in the Mesh stitch the single crochet is worked into the single crochet stitches, which create subtle lines across the fabric.


What Stitches Are Used For C2C?

I love taking different crochet stitches and turning them into different C2C stitches, I love that the corner to corner method spears me the stress of making a long starting chain, and also creates a more uniform tension in the project.

I recently created the C2C Mini Bean stitch, and if you are looking for more texture, you should check out the Waves of Grain C2C Stitch
