The Offset Filet Net stitch is made entirely of double crochets and chains and produces a lovely lacy fabric. It’s a great stitch for all skill levels!
This easy crochet stitch would suit a variety of different yarn weights. I’ve used it to make a chunky cowl down to a lacy spring scarf.

All About the Offset Filet Net Crochet Stitch
I mentioned above that this crochet stitch is made entirely of double crochets and chains but let’s get into it a little more. Like most crochet stitches you’ll start out with your foundation chain. This can be any odd number (or if you want to get technical: multiple of 2 + 3 more).
Then you’ll double crochet, ch 1 and skip a stitch all the way across. This is your foundation or set up row.
On the next row, you’ll be double crocheting in each ch-1 space from the previous row with a chain 1 between each double crochet like you did on row 1. That’s why this stitch works up so quickly! You are only crocheting into the chain spaces so you don’t have to take the time to find where to insert your hook.
The offset filet net stitch is a one-row repeat, so you just repeat that last row you made until your piece is the size you want it. Easy peasy.

Offset Filet Net Crochet Stitch Instructions
Let’s try it out. Grab some yarn and your hook and we’ll get started. I’m using a worsted weight yarn from my stash and a 5mm hook.
- ch(s): chain(s)
- dc: double crochet
- st(s): stitch(es)
- Ch 4 counts as 1 dc + ch 1
- this stitch is reversible
- one-row repeat
Ch an even number plus 3.
Row 1: Dc in 5th ch from hook (counts as 1 dc + ch 1), * ch1, skip 1 ch, dc in next, repeat from * until the end of the row, turn
Row 2: ch 4 (counts as 1 dc + ch1), skip 1 dc, *dc in ch 1 sp, ch 1, skip 1 dc repeat until the end. Place 1 dc under (not through) the 4th turning ch. Turn.
Now just repeat row 2 until your piece reaches the desired size. Easy-Peasey.
