Basketweave Blanket

Basketweave BlannketYarn: Bernat Berella 4 Solids & Ragg
10 skeins = 1950.0 yards (1783.1m) in Teal
Needle: US 15 / 10.0 mm
Size: 40" x 60"

I really love how the stitch pattern works up in bulky weight, but after a while it gets cumbersome to knit something this heavy, but it kept my lap warm on chilly evenings. For the border, I connected a few cords of my Boye Needlemaster to make one long circ, and picked up about 400 sts and made a garter st border. DD loves it!

  1. Love the color! From a distance, it looks just like the crocheted basketweave stitch that I have used on afghans. I like that stitch either knitted or crocheted.
