Knit the Diagonal Basket Weave Stitch Pattern with free pattern

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!

CLOSER LOOK Diagonal Basket Weave Knit Stitch

It’s a tight weave! Before you get started, I want to point out that this cable stitch is a very tight weave, as it crisscrosses itself.

If you like the look of this stitch, but would rather it be a more medium weave (and not so tight), check out my new Lattice Stitch cable pattern. I also have a very simple Basket Weave knit stitch pattern perfect for beginning knitters, too!

Take a look the right and wrong sides of this Diagonal Basket Weave Knit Stitch Pattern. You can see that it is NOT a reversible pattern, as the pretty design is only visible on the right side of our work.
