There are a lot of different ways to make basketweave patterns but I am first gonna show you how to make an easy one.
This is done on a sample scale. You can make it wider if you want to make a blanket but for demonstration purposes I am showing you a narrow version. With the narrow version you can turn it into a dishcloth or perhaps keep going and make it long for a scarf and maybe add some tassles to it.
If you do not know how to make a front post double crochet or a back post double crochet , please refer to the previous lesson.
Step 1: Ch 19 , sc in the 2nd ch from hook ,then sc in each chain across. (you should have 18 single crochets)
Step 2: ch 2 ; turn , dc in each sc across
Step 3: ch 2 ; turn , FPdc in the next available stitch , FPdc in the next 3 dc , BPdc in next 4 dc , FPdc in the next 4 dc , BPdc in the next 4 dc ,then dc in the last dc.
Step 4: ch 2 ; turn , BPdc in the next available stitch , BPdc in the next 3 dc , FPdc in next 4 dc , BPdc in the next 4 dc , FPdc in the next 4 dc ,then dc in the last dc.
Step 5: Repeat steps 3 and 4 to reach desired length.
Step 6: (last row) ch1 ; sc in each stitch across.
finish off and weave in ends
