Basketweave Stitch (Stitch Sampler Scrapghan CAL 2021 – Part 7)

February 19, 2021

This week’s stitch is the Basketweave Stitch! I love this textured stitch and the design it creates. I’ve used this stitch in some of my designs like the Chunky Basketweave Throw and the Basketweave Market Bag.

Scrapghan Tips

· If you’re having trouble getting the sizing right, remember that it’s easier to adjust a square that’s too small than one that’s too big.

· If a square comes out too small you can add an additional round for the border, go up a hook size, and/or steam block and stretch the square to the size you want.

· The edges might curl. This can be fixed with some steam blocking. It won’t be noticeable after sewing.

· Each square has at least 2 rounds of border. For the last round of the border I used the same color for each square (the dark gray). This is the same color used for the sewing.

· The squares will be released in sewing order, starting with the bottom left. I left a long end for sewing on each of the squares. The long end is approximately twice the length of one side.

· Each square does not need the same number of stitches for the border.

  1. Hi been sick here and really don’t want to go through all my emails to find the patterns. Is there a page where I can get the previous squares? Want to use this for charity with leftover yarn from other projects. Thank you for your time
