About the Stitch
This crochet stitch is very airy and light. It is very similar to the filet stitch (typically with a chain 1 or 2 spaces between) except this has 3 chains in between making the holes a bit larger.
The checkers crochet stitch would be great for light garments, market bags, or incorporated with other stitches to add a light, airy texture.
