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! 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 pattern.
