Stitch Series Basket Weave Stitch

The next stitch in our series is the basket weave. This is a very versatile stitch. It can be used for a sweater design, blanket, shawl, stole, socks, skirts and just about anything else you would want to make.

The stitch number for basket weave is a multiple of 6 plus 2 more stitches. If you are to do this pattern after a ribbing, make sure its a k2, p1 ribbing.

The fabric made is extremely stretchy. It will, however, bounce back into place like any other ribbed fabric.

Method

  1. *K2, P4 repeat from * end with K2
  2. *P2, K4 repeat from * end with P2
  3. *K2, P4 repeat from * end with K2
  4. *P2, K4 repeat from * end with P2
  5. K
  6. P
  7. P3, *K2, P4 repeat from * end with K2, P3
  8. K3, *P2, K4 repeat from * end with P2, K3
  9. P3, *K2, P4 repeat from * end with K2, P3
  10. K3, *P2, K4 repeat from * end with P2, K3
  11. K
  12. P
Repeat these 12 rows for the pattern.

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial!
