I am loving the texture of the basketweave stitch paired with this yarn. They go together perfectly! With a simple 5 row repeat, this basketweave stitch in easy to create and turns out absolutely gorgeous.

Trust me when I say, you won’t be chilly when snuggling with this blanket. It’s thick, warm, and bound to keep even the coldest toes nice and toasty.

Ch 1, *(sc, ch 2, sc) in the corner stitch, sc along the outside of the blanket, working approx. 2 sc in the side of each dc to the next corner, (sc, ch 2, sc) in the corner stitch, sc in each stitch across to the next corner* repeat from * to * to the first sc, join to the first sc with a sl st

    1. I love this pattern, I have tried it on my own and did not work so well. Your instructions seem so easy to follow, I am going to try it.
      Could you tell me where best place to get needles at?

  1. This was so much fun to make! Instead of the chunky yarn, i used up a ton of my yarn stash, with three strands randomly. It turned out great! Thanks for the pattern!

  2. Beautiful basketweave throw! Would you reduce the hook size with blanket yarn (Bernat) to get a tighter weave? Thanks!

          1. Hi! I have not tried it just yet! When I do I will certainly let you know! Chatleen

    1. Hi 🙂 Try a starting ch of 100. I gave this blanket as a gift so I can’t measure it. But this will give you another 6 stitches.

      If it’s still not big enough try 106.

  3. I love this pattern and am making one for my queen size bed. I was looking at the possibility of doing it in stripes. How many rows would you recommend between color changes?

  4. Hi!

    Just want to be sure the quantity of yarn is 17 skeins for a throw. It seems like a lot. Is it really 17?
