Knit and Crochet Net Stitches

This week on Ask Me Monday (live on Facebook on Mondays at 12pmCT) I show how to knit and crochet the net stitch, a great choice for summer tops, swimsuit cover-ups, and market bags like those featured in the July YarnYAY! pack. Give the episode a watch, then put your skills to work with the practice swatches below. Enjoy!
