Crochet Thursday — Basket Weave Stitch

Posted on

I received an email from  AllFreeCrochet recently and found a video (YouTube)on the site teaching the Basket Weave stitch. OMG!  I’m in love. This stitch is versatile, rich and thick. I must warn you though as the video states it is a yarn hog so make sure that you have enough yarn to complete your project. I didn’t heed this warning and started making a cowl with bit of a skein of Manos del Uruguay silk blend (30% Silk, 70% Merino Extrafine Wool, Kettle Dyed) in the colorway  Stellar (#3110) I bought this yarn when I started knitting/crocheting again because it was beautiful. Ah well not enough to finish but enough to show the stitch off. Visit the site when you can there are tons of things there!
