Stitch Guide: Right Leaning Mesh

Right leaning mesh stitch has a natural bias to it.  This happens because of the combination of where yarn overs are placed and how the decreases lean.  This stitch makes for a very open fabric with lots of stretch and drape. It is relatively simple to knit and is easy to commit to memory.  This is a great stitch for market bags or a light and airy summer top.  Just keep in mind that your knitting will be biased.
