Today, we are knitting up this beautiful Basket Weave Stitch Pattern. The design is diagonal and has a woven, braided look using cable stitches.
This stitch pattern is a very tight weave. It would be perfect to knit for projects that you want to be really stiff, like home decor items. Pillows would be gorgeous!
