Wide Basket Weave Stitch Knitting Pattern

This Wide Basket Weave Stitch Knitting Pattern easily creates an interwoven illusion using knits and purls with different widths of textured strips. Blocked Stockinette, Garter, and Purl Ridge textures are stacked together in this variation on the standard Basket Weave Stitch. Horizontal rows are knitted in a wider stitch pattern than the vertical columns.

This 10-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern is a great choice for knitting up impressive blankets, pillows, scarves and more. Please continue reading to get all your materials, techniques, and written pattern instructions to knit this pattern both flat on straight needles and in the round on circular needles.

CLOSER LOOK at the Wide Basket Weave Stitch Pattern

Wide horizontal rows alternate in the Stockinette and Garter stitches separated a pop of Purl Ridge texture. 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!
