Woven Basket

Woven Basket

Non - Reversible
Multiples of 2 stitches, and 2 row Repeat
photo shows Worsted Weight, size 8 needles
4 x 4 inch swatch = 22 stitches, 18 rows

This is a tight stitch with good density. Appropriate for pillows, mats, coats, or anything that doesn't require drape and benefits with a stiffer material.

Solid colors show up the dimensionality of this pattern, but it also could be very appealing in a heather yarn.

The chart shows a cable stitch, however given there are only ever two stitches involved, it is quite easy to knit the second stitch first by coming from the back, then knitting the first stitch and slipping them both off. And on the even (ws) rows, purl the second stitch first, then purl the first and slip both off.

I have gone over these charts and written patterns a number of times, but no one is infallible, so please leave a comment referring to the stitch pattern and any error you might find.

Also, feel free to ask questions. I can always try to answer them.
