Yarn finally arrived from We Are Knitters for me to finish the basket weave blanket! (Baby’s rattle pictured for size reference.)
This took 7 skeins of The Baby Wool in Grey, 100% baby alpaca. The blanket came out to be about 2′ x 2′ or 24″ x 24″.
I think as I begin to develop my own patterns and pieces, I’ll be able to write more coherent patterns for you all. If you’re interested in making this blanket also, please check out the video below for the tutorial I used on how to make this stitch. It’s essentially one giant square in that stitch.
- US Size H or 5.00mm crochet hook (Clover Soft Touch) per the yarn’s suggestion
- When making the basket weave design your item has to be made in multiples of 8 and then add 7, this blanket was 103 chain stitches across the bottom.
- On her video she did 4 rows of each, making 2 chains across every other, but I opted for 5 rows to make 3 chains across every other. It looked more pleasing to me since the vertical ones were 4 across. It’s really up to you how you want your blanket to look.
