How To Crochet the Basketweave Stitch



The crochet basketweave stitch is an easy stitch full of wonderful texture. Using post stitches creates a woven look that is actually is much easier to stitch up than it looks. Included in this post is a full photo tutorial and a full video tutorial that guides you through stitch by stitch. Have you made this stitch before? We'd love to hear about it in the comments below!

Let's connect!


Check out the full video tutorial to crochet along with me:

Below is the photo tutorial, number in each of the photo corresponds to the written step:


Row 1:

Step 1: Make a chain in a multiple of 6+4. For this photo tutorial I did 6+6+4 or a total of 16 chains.  In the video, I made the swatch a little wider with more multiples.
Step 2: Work a dc in the 4th ch from the hook.
Step 3: Work a dc in each of the remaining chains.
Step 4: Ch 2 and turn your work.

Row 2:

Step 5: Skip the first dc and work a fpdc (front post double crochet) in each of the next three stitches. 
Step 6: Work a bpdc (back post double crochet) in each of the next three stitches.
Step 7: Work a fpdc in each of the next 3 stitches.
Step 8: Work a bpdc in each of the next 3 stitches.
*Note: If your swatch is wider than this one, keep repeating steps 7 and 8 until you reach the end.
Step 9: Work a dc in the top chain of the turning chain to finish the row.


Row 3: repeat each step from row 2.


Row 4:

Step 10: Skip the first dc and work a bpdc in each of the next three stitches. 
Step 11: Work a fpdc in each of the next three stitches.
Step 12: Work a bpdc in each of the next three stitches.
Step 13: Work a fpdc in each of the next three stitches.
*Note: If your swatch is wider than this one, keep repeating steps 12 and 13 until you reach the end.
Step 14: Work a dc in the top chain of the turning chain to finish the row.


Row 5: Repeat each step from row 4.

Repeat rows 2-5 until your piece is as tall as you'd like it to be.  Happy crocheting!
