Learn How To Make The Knitted Diagonal Basket Weave Stitch Pattern
In this video tutorial, you will learn how to make the knitted diagonal basket weave stitch pattern.
This knitted stitch pattern produces a sturdy fabric with a tight weave. The finished fabric has a diagonal pattern that has a woven, braided look.
Since the resulting fabric is quite stiff, this is a stitch that is great for making home decor items. For instance, the basket weave stitch will look great in a pillow or a basket.
To get started, you will need to cast on in multiples of 2. In fact, the actual pattern is only knitted over 4 rows. You then go on to repeat these 4 rows until you have achieved the desired length.
