Crochet a Mesh Scarf

An alternative to knitting mesh scarves is to crochet it. This creates a loose and wavy scarf that is relatively thinner. Therefore, I like to choose a bigger mesh like CATALINA to work with.

You insert the crochet hook into 6 mesh sections and pull the last one through the other 5. Keep going until you reach the end.

To make it wider, you can crochet 2 mesh pieces together similar to knitting 2 together. Or crochet in another mesh to a completed scarf until you reach the desired width.

Alternatively, and I saw this on Lion Brand Yarn website, is to stuff 1 piece of mesh with another piece of mesh in a similar or contrasting colour to create a bulky fabric you can use as a scarf.
