With your Q/15 mm hook ch 94 (multiple of 6 + 4)

Row 1: dc in 4th ch from the hook (ch 3 counts as dc) and in each ch across (92 dc)

Row 2: ch 3, turn, *fpdc in next 3 stitches, bpdc in next 3 stitches* repeat from * to * across to last stitch, dc in top of turning ch from previous row (45 fpdc, 45 bpdc, 2 dc)

Row 3: repeat row 2

Row 4: repeat row 2

Row 5: ch 3, turn, *bpdc in next 3 stitches, fpdc in next 3 stitches* repeat from * to * across to last stitch, dc in top of turning ch from previous row 45 fpdc, 45 bpdc, 2 dc)

Row 6: repeat row 5

Row 7: repeat row 5

Repeat rows 2 – 7 to row 55 (or until desired length)

Do not fasten off. Next is the border. I hooked down to a L/8 mm hook because my edges were a bit loose and I wanted to tighten them up a bit. Hooking down a size or two is optional.

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

Fasten off, weave in the ends

    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. Great pattern, thanks for your video. I am in Sydney with Corona house restriction and am very happy to have found your pattern. Regards, Anita

  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. Thank you! You could probably go down a hook size. You could make a little swatch and see how you like it πŸ™‚

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

    1. Hi πŸ™‚ 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 cant wait to make this using blanket yarn. I think my granddaughter will love it. Thanks for the pattern

  4. 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?

  5. 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?

      1. Yikes, 17 skeins at about $12 a pop on Amazon seems a bit much. I’d go broke making this blanket! It is beautiful, though. Thanks for sharing your talents!!

  6. I was thinking about making this a baby blanket so I would want the size a bit smaller. Do you have any suggestions on how to change up the 94 chains and then the 45 bpdc and 45 fpdc? I was wondering if 74 chains and then 35 bpdc and 35 fpdc would work? Or a different count? I’m terrible with adjustment the measurements from a pattern. I appreciate any help.


  7. Can you tell me specifically which Lion Brand Thick and Quick yarn you used? Homespun? Heartland? Wool-Ease? I love the textured look of it.

  8. When I tried this, it didnt look like yhe picture where there is so much space between each line. How did you get that effect?

      1. Yes! same for me. I am making a couple swatches with two colors to see which I will like best as I try out this pattern (& stitch) for the first time and my results are very different. I am using a 12 mm crochet hook, but I didn’t think it would be so different. I was really hoping to get the really wide, open, spacey squares that you have in your picture. Is that simply a matter of the change in needle size??

  9. Thank you so much for this pattern plus ALL of the gorgeous pat!terns you are giving us! I especially love this throw… so I might need to start on it right away so it’s ready for snuggling when the weather cools off

  10. Hello,i loved your pattern and your instructional video was excellen!
    My question is,i have alot of chenille type soft yarn, bulky 5 weight.i understand stitch count, but have you tried in softer yarn, do you think it would hold shape well or should i stay with recommended yarn to have it come out right.i did a swatch and it looks very pretty,but am afraid yarn might not hold afghan shape as length inreases..maybe go down hook size or two?
    Tx, your ideas much appreciated.
