This Wide Basket Weave Stitch Knitting Pattern easily creates an interwoven illusion with a simple combination of knits and purls to create different widths of textured strips.
Blocked textures are stacked together in this variation on the standard Basket Weave Stitch. Horizontal rows are knitted in a wider stitch pattern than vertical columns.
This 10-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern is a great choice for knitting up impressive blankets, pillows, scarves, and more.

CLOSER LOOK at the Wide Basket Weave Stitch
This is not a reversible pattern because the right side of the work displays the design, but the wrong (back) side does not. However, you can see that the differences on each side are practically imperceptible. Go ahead and treat this as reversible if you’d like… your choice!
