The Basketweave stitch is a stitch pattern that looks elaborate and complicated but is rather simple to knit. This stitch uses variations of knit and purl techniques to create a design that resembles a basket, hence the name “basketweave.” Because of its simple design, this pattern is perfect for projects such as scarves and afghans.
