Granny Square No 3 - Mesh - For Foggy Dawn Sweater Project

Here is another detailed video tutorial of #3 mesh granny square for crocheters for our Foggy Dawn Sweater Project. If you would like to make this sweater, click on the link "Introduction to this project" below OR on one of the two links for a PLAYLIST (left-handed or right-handed crocheters), to crochet along. My videos are quite detailed for anyone that needs help with crocheting. But if you are more experienced, use it just as a reference and skip some of the parts so you don't get too bored.

Use this pattern for any project - my sweater, a granny square blanket, or any other project that requires crocheted squares.

To crochet this square, you need to know how to crochet chain, slip stitch, single crochet stitch, and double crochet stitch.

Note: In the video, while I videotaped my last row in SOME of these videos I worked my corner stitches as such: (3 dc, ch3, 3 dc). As I made more of these squares I changed the corner to (3 dc, ch2, 3 dc) - one less chain stitch in the corner. It is better for joining the squares. Thank you for understanding.

Note: Most of the time I work as fast as I can to keep up with knitting and crocheting requests. I have to videotape, edit videos, then convert them & upload them to my channel. After that often I post on my blog patterns. I answer many questions, which means that often I work up to 16 hours a day. I would tremendously appreciate IF anyone of you who finds an error in the written pattern, so please, let me know - where (what rows) and what may be the problem. Many future knitters & crocheters from our artsy and crafty virtual world will thank you for your good deed, including myself.
