Crochet Basketweave Stitch is the perfect stitch to create a fabric with a dense texture. As the name suggests, the stitch looks like a woven wicker basket. It’s a reversible stitch, so an excellent choice for projects where you can see both sides.
The Basketweave Crochet Stitch is worked over by repeating four rows of the pattern instructions. It mainly uses front and back post double crochet stitches (fpdc and bpdc) along with the double crochet (dc) stitches.
One thing to note about this stitch is that it works up a rather thick fabric, so if you’re planning to make some wearable, it’s better to go with light and medium-weight yarns. You can use bulky or super bulky yarns to make durable projects like a rug.
