Free Tutorial on How to Knit Basket Weave Pattern
The basket weave pattern is very easy to knit, yet it looks so pretty and it can appear quiet complicated. This pattern looks great on scarfs, hats, blankets, pillowcases and bags, just to name a few.

How to Knit Basket Weave Pattern
- Pick your yarn and needles.
- Cast any even number of stitches on your needle.
Rows 1, 3, 5 (odd-numbered rows) Knit 4, *purl 4, knit 4; *purl 4 and repeat till you have a full row.
Rows 2, 4, 6 (even-numbered rows) Purl 4, *knit 4, purl 4; *knit 4 and repeat till you have a full row.
Repeat rows for pattern.
The basket weave pattern is very easy as long as you follow the rows. You can make the squares of the pattern wider too by doing 6 (or more) stitches per basket instead of 4 (pattern above).
