This is a free filet crochet mesh bag for yarn or a water bottle that makes a great beginner pattern. This is a great beginner pattern to learn how to do filet crochet.
Yarn either runs away or collapses when you use it to crochet. And both versions can create yarn knots or yarn barf. But no worries there is a solution to this. Meet the Yarn Mesh Bag which is made with filet crochet. You can store and transport your yarn inside the mesh bag and it can’t run away it also can collapse (when pulled from the center) nicely without any knots as the mesh bag holds the yarn sturdy in one place.
Although I didn’t add a handle to the bag you can totally add one as you can then just carry it over your should. Fun fact, this mesh bag also works great for water bottles. So it’s a multi-purpose mesh bag. I wonder what else you can easily store inside of it to make your life easier.
This Bottle and Yarn Mesh Bag used includes a video and used to be part of a mystery crochet along.

Bottle/ Yarn Mesh Bag – Filet Crochet Stitch Section
Use the white yarn
Every first dc stitch is made as an ATC or ch 3 and count it as a stitch.
R1: MR, add 12 dc, close the ring, sl st to the first st
R2: in each st, place 1 dc and ch 1, sl st to the first st
R3: *1 dc in the first st, ch 1, 1 dc in the ch-sp, ch 1, sk 1 st, 1 dc in the next st, ch 1, repeat from * all around
R4 – 16: (sk all ch spaces) in each st, *1 dc, ch 1, repeat from * all around, sl st to the first st Add a crochet icord through the last round of the mesh bag.
I used this I-Cord Pattern Tutorial:
Using both strands of the yarn, crochet an icord about 35 inches long.
Crochet the icord like this: crochet a slip knot with both strands, hold both strand in your hand, *wrap one strand (same one each time) from the front to the back around your hook, yarn over with the 2nd strand, and pull through the first loop on your hook, repeat from until you reach the length
Fasten off and weave in your ends.
Optionally: add a bag handle of your choice.
Now is the question, will you use your mesh bag for your bottle or your yarn or something totally different?
