Basket Weave Baby Blanket

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.

Tools:

  • US Size H or 5.00mm crochet hook (Clover Soft Touch) per the yarn’s suggestion

Notes:

  • 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.

#WIP – Basket Weave Baby Blanket (Crochet)

I don’t think I’ve ever estimated how many balls I need for a blanket properly… This is 2′ or 24″ wide. But that’s the last of my four balls of grey The Baby Wool (100% baby alpaca). J let me finish my project instead of making me unravel it, so I got to order 3 more in the mail based on WAK’s Skein Converter. In order to make the $60USD for free shipping deal, I added another color skein of baby alpaca and 3 balls of The Pima Cotton. 😍 And now we wait for my happy yarn mail from WAK…

Oh, P.S. I ordered a bunch of skeins from DROP Yarns also via Nordic Mart… SO MUCH YARN. ☺️ So happy. Will post pictures of the haul when it arrives…


If you want to learn this technique,  please check out Bella Coco on YouTube! I added a third row to make it more even to my eyes, but after you learn it, super easy to design how you want it! I used a Clover soft touch crochet hook in 5.00mm or US size H to make this pattern on The Baby Wool from We Are Knitters.
