Knit With Me 12

Basket Stitch

I adore the look of this pattern but I'm afraid it varies over a few rows so it's not very easy just to knit from your head so to speak. When rows get complicated, sometimes I write them down and tick off as I go. This pattern is well worth the effort and produces a lovely warm weave. Visually it will be outstanding in your project piece.
It's knit over multiple of 6 and I am casting on 48.

Basket Stitch
Rows 1 and 7: K
Rows 2 and 8: P
Rows 3 and 5: *K1, P4, K1*
Rows 4 and 6: *P1, K4, P1*
Rows 9 and 11: *P2, K2, P2*
Rows 10 and 12: *K2, P2, K2*

I do hope there are still some of you knitting with me. I am encouraged by the way the rug is coming together and will have another photo soon.

  1. don't be disheartened...I am still knitting with you...
    I love coming to the site once a week to gather my knitting pattern. i have not begun to sew them together. I am waiting to see how many blocks there are first.
    I am like you, I tick off each row if they are a little technical.
    All good fun though.
    Cheers, and thanks for all you do.

    I don't really have a blog or else I would comment to you from there.
