Basket Loop Stitch Knitting Pattern

This Basket Loop Stitch Knitting Pattern is an easy pattern that creates a textured illusion of looping interwoven rings atop a background of vertical pillars. This 14-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern looks complex, but it really just a simple combination of knits and purls. As a result, it is a great choice for knitting up pillows a visually appealing design.

IS THE BASKET LOOP STITCH A REVERSIBLE PATTERN?

This Basket Loop design has ring shapes knitted with the Garter Stitch texture. They rest atop a background of the Stockinette Stitch. This is not a reversible pattern because the right side of the work displays the design, but you can see that the wrong (back) side does not.
