Basket Weave Pattern

Submission by: Elaine

The below pattern is from the book "Jean Frost Jackets"

published by XRX Books, who gave their permission to use it.

Basket weave pattern: (multiple of 8 plus 2 sts; includes edge sts.) [I used 106 stitches of worsted weight yarn and size 13 needle.]

Row 1: (WS) K1, p across, end k1
Row 2: K1, p2, k2, *p6, k2; repeat from *, last five stitches in p4, k1
Row 3: K5, *p2, k6; repeat from *, last five stitches in p2, k2, k1
Row 4: Repeat Row 2
Row 5: Repeat Row 1
Row 6: K1, *p6, k2; repeat from *, end k1
Row 7: K1, *p2, k6; repeat from *, end k7
Row 8: Repeat Row 6

Pattern = Repeat Rows 1 - 8

 Jean Frost recommends always starting and ending a row with a k1. That way it never curls.
