Free Pattern:

This pattern works in a continuous circle. We work with back and front posts to achieve this pattern. The basket weave stitch is in groups of 6. There is 3 rows between the basket transition. We need to ensure you are matching the posts properly and we have to ensure when we are grabbing a post by the opposite side that it’s on purpose to match the pattern properly. Step 3 is critical for establishing this pattern properly.

  1. Ch 3, HDC 6 times into the BEG CH to form circle. SL ST to the top of the BEG CH.
  2. CH 2, 2 HDC into each stitch. SL ST to the top of the BEG CH
  3. CH 2, *First stitch is FPDC, next stitch gets 2 FPDC around the same post. Next stitch gets BPDC, next stitch gets 2 BPDC. Repeat from *all the way around. SL ST at the top of the BEG CH.
