How to crochet a net?

I want to crochet a scarf and cowl which looks like nets.
Similar to this one.

Or like this hexagon one.

It doesn't matter what,I just want to learn to crochet a net.

Does anyone know a good tutorial for it?

Any help is welcomed!Thank you! Happy

It looks like you just make a long chain, then in every 4th chain or so, make a treble crochet or something similar, chain 4 maybe and treble crochet in the 4th chain from your last treble crochet?

I could be incorrect on the exact number of chains or what not, but it seems like it was made in a similar way.

This one is the basic stitches you could use to make the scarf. (If you can...I don't know)

I have crocheted a few things making that net stitch, maybe you can find something on youtube. Here is one that looks something similar like the scarf, couldn't find anything that looks like the bag, though I have done both stitches.

I do a lot of crochet in the round since my specialty is hats and bags. At one point though, in looking through a book of patterns, I found a doily that had the look of netting. It's really a very simple pattern, and if you don't do well from a pattern I hope that these instructions work for you.

Base: Chain (ch) 4 or 5; make a loop by making a slip stitch (sl) into the first chain.

1st row (round): Ch 2 (for height); into the loop (base) double crochet (dc) anywhere between 9 & 14 (usually 12 or 13, depending on your yarn/twine and hook); sl into loop made by first 2 chains to end the row.

2nd row: Ch 2; * dc into first stitch (st) of previous row; * ch 1; repeat from * till end of row; sl into beginning 2 ch to end row.

3rd row: (this is the beginning of the net pattern) Ch 1 for height; skip first st of previous row; single crochet (sc) into first ch (space) of previous row; * ch 2; sc into next space; repeat from * until end of row; dc into top of first sc to end row.

4th row: ch 1; sc into last dc (space) of previous row (the space where you just made that ch); * ch 3; sc into next space; repeat from * until end of row; dc into top of first sc to end row (is this starting to seem familiar?).

5th row: ch 1; sc into last space of previous row; * ch 4; sc into next space; repeat from * until end of row; ch 1; dc into top of first sc to end row (1 ch + 1 dc = about 4 ch).

6th row: ch 1; sc into last space of previous row; * ch 5; sc into next space; you should have the idea now, right? to end this row, ch 2 and dc into first sc.

The pattern so far makes a flat bottom; when you get it as wide as you want it you simply repeat the last row until you've made a bag as deep as you need it.

If you want a rounded bottom, increase one row then repeat that row a second time until it's as wide as you want it and then repeat until it's as deep as you want it.

This gets you a diamond net pattern. For the hex pattern shown in the pic above you'll want to move to a double or triple crochet once you reach the width you want.

When you're approaching the depth you need, start reducing your rows to make it harder for things to roll out of the bag. Do this for about 4 or 5 rows.

At the end, reduce the number of chains to about half of the previous row (sc 1, chain 6 in next to last row means sc 1, ch 3 in last row to make a nice straight rim).

Finish by adding handles and maybe even a drawstring. Alternatives include a single satchel strap or even double shoulder straps (backpack style).

I hope this works for you.

Here is one I did, I really hate patterns so this is more of a tutorial. For a bag. But you can make the base whatever size you want. http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/wine-bottle-cozy
