How to Crochet a Basket Weave Stitch for Beginners



The Crochet Basket Weave is wonderful for washcloths, dishcloths, blankets, or just about anything. I used medium worsted yarn and I hook, but you can use any type of hook and yarn. 

This pretty crochet stitch is done in Multiples of 8 + 7

Row 1: Dc in the 3rd chain from the hook, dc in each chain across,

Row 2: Ch 2, Turn, *front post dc in the next 4 dc, back post dc in the next 4 dc, Repeat by alternating between 4 front and back post across, end with a hdc in the last stitch

Row 3: Ch 2, Turn, *back post in the next 4 dc, front post in the next 4 dc, *Repeat across, end with hdc in the ch 2

Row 4: Ch 2, Turn, *back post in the next 4 dc, front post in the next 4 dc, *Repeat across, end with hdc

Row 5: Ch 2, Turn, *front post dc in the next 4 dc, back post dc in the next 4 dc, Repeat by alternating between 4 front and back post across, end with a hdc

Alternate between the Rows 2 through 5
