Crochet Striped Mesh Stitch Blanket

mesh stripes blanket folded

This beautiful blanket was made by me almost seven years ago and is still one of my favorite designs. It is made with the classic mesh stitch, which is a simple repeat of single crochet and chain one. The shell border just adds the finishing touch. 

I’m re-sharing this pattern today because somehow a lot of spam crochet accounts on Facebook have shared this photo of this blanket without sharing a link to the pattern. I’ve done my best to get the pattern to as many people as I can, but decided to just re-share it here on our site so it is on the front page and easy for people to find. 

Thank you all to those who recognized this photo as something from Daisy Farm Crafts and tagged me. I really appreciate that you can recognize my work. You are all such a blessing to me and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. 

Now let’s get to the original post: 

XO, Tiffany


The mesh stitch is a very easy stitch to do with fantastic results. I like that both sides of the blanket look the same. There is no right side or wrong side, except for the shell border, but that doesn’t matter at all.

I made this blanket using Isaac Mizhari yarn from Michael’s, but I don’t think this particular line is in production anymore, so feel free to use any 3 weight yarn you like! (Or any weight for that matter, this pattern can adapt to be used with any yarn.) 

If you are looking for a yarn however that has similar colors, I found that Bernat Softee Baby has a beautiful shade of pink called petunia and if you paired it with the shade called flannel, you could get similar results to this blanket.

The written pattern is below, but here is some video help if you are more of a visual learner!


Appx. 4 – 5 skeins of any 3-weight yarn, 2 skeins of each color and one extra of whatever color you choose for the border.

Size H/5.00mm hook, tapestry needle, scissors


Finished size 30 in x 30 in


Single Crochet (SC): Insert your hook, yarn over (YO) and pull up a loop, YO and pull through two loops on hook.

Double Crochet (DC): YO, insert your hook, YO and pull up a loop, YO and pull through two loops, YO and pull through remaining two loops.


Make a chain as long as you’d like in multiples of 2. 

Row 1: 1 SC into 2nd CH from hook, *CH 1, skip next CH, 1 SC into next CH* repeat * to the end, turn.

Row 2: CH 1, 1 SC into first SC, *CH 1, SK next CH 1, 1 SC into next SC* repeat * to the end, turn.

Repeat row 2 four more times, then change colors. Repeat row 2 six times, then change colors again. Each block of colors is six rows.

Tip: leave your tails hanging and weave in later, it helps you to know when you’ve reached the sixth row. I had a hard time distinguishing how many rows I had made. But having the tails out, was an easy marker, they should all be on one side of the blanket.


SC around the entire blanket two times. I stitched into the SC, and CH spaces and on the sides I put one stitch per row. I also did extra sc around the corners. 

Shell: 1 SC, *SK next SC, 5 DC into next SC, SK next SC, 1 SC into next SC,* repeat *to the end.
