Basket-weave Square


I used approximately 75gm pale pink 8ply (DK) wool @ 100m (105yd) per 50gm.


20sts and 28 rows to 4 inches (10cm) over st st on 4.5mm needles, or needles needed to obtain gauge.


Cast on 48sts and increase as follows:

K2, inc in each st to last 2 sts, K2

Work in basketweave pattern as follows:

Rows 1, 3, and 5 (Wrong side): K2, P to last 2 sts, K2

Rows 2 and 4: Knit

Row 6: K2, *sl next 4 sts onto dpn and and hold in back, K4, then K4 from dpn; rep from * to last 2 sts, K2

Rows 7, 9, and 11: K2, purl to last 2 sts, K2

Rows 8 and 10: Knit

Row 12: K6, *sl next 4 sts to dpn and hold in front, K4, then k4 from dpn; rep from * to last 6 sts, K6
