Basket weave crochet stitch

 So I'll be honest, writing the pattern for this stitch or pattern is quite challenging, to try and make as simple as possible for readers, I had to think and rethink  how best I could write it, that's why it took me so many years to do lol.

I don't know why but maybe from it's name, this stitch is perfect for any project destined for men or boys, you would first think of blanket, scarf, hat ( which you can work flat then stitch together), pillow.....

So finally today I did it, I'm not sure though how it is, but if you visit here and you try it, I would love to know if you found it easy to follow or to be done again.

You'll find as always the video links for part one and two below, also some of my favorite yarn I always use.

Chain: chain

St: stitch

Sl st: slip stitch

fpst: front post stitch: yarn over, insert the hook behind the next stitch and out the front side, work a double crochet.

bpstitch: back post stitch: yarn over insert the hook at the back of the stitch, pulling the previous st behind and work a double crochet.

Written Pattern:

ch any number

Row1: dc in the 3rd ch from the hook, 1 dc in every ch till the end of the row

Block 1

Row2: ch2, 1fpst in each one of the next 3 st, 1bpst in the next 3 st, Repeat ( 1fpst in the next 3 st, 1bpst in the next 3 st) till the end of the row.

Row 3: ch2, now what was fpst in the previous row, work 1 back post st in the next 3 st and what was previously bpst in the previous row work fpst.

Or of it's simpler this way: if you see fpst work fpst on top of them and the same for the bpst.

Row 2 and 3 are blocks of the first basket weave pattern

Block 2

Row4: ch2, now if you see a fpst, you now work 3 bpst and in the next bpst, you work 3 fpst till the end of the row.

Row 5: repeat Row 3.

Repeat the blocks alternating between block 1 and 2 until the end of your project
