Basketweave Stitch Pattern is a simple yet detailed pattern that you can learn to knit quite easily. It only involves basic knit and purl stitches. The pattern appears like a woven basket and creates a fabric with a nice texture. There’s another similar pattern, Large Basket Weave Stitch, where the weaving looks more prominent and a little bit wavy as compared to this one.
This free knitting pattern will look great in projects such as afghans, scarves, or other projects where you want pattern repeats. You can even use it to make small things such as a cup cozy and hats. It’s not a reversible pattern, so the Right Side and Wrong Side look different.
