How to Knit Basketweave Stitch

Like many stitches, the basketweave stitch looks complicated but is actually very easy to create. Basketweave stitch got its name for obvious reasons, as you can see.

Try your hand at knitting basic basketweave:

  1. Cast on a multiple of 8 sts, plus 5 sts.

  2. Follow this stitch pattern:

    Rows 1 and 5 (RS): Knit.

    Rows 2 and 4: K5, * p3, k5; rep from * to end of row.

    Row 3: P5, * k3, p5; rep from * to end of row.

    Rows 6 and 8: K1, p3, * k5, p3; rep from * to last st, k1.

    Row 7: P1, k3, * p5, k3; rep from * to last st, k1.

  3. Repeat Rows 1–8 to create the pattern.

You can use any number of stitches for each block — 4 x 4, 5 x 5, 3 x 7, and so on — for variations on the basic basketweave.
