How to Crochet a Basketweave Stitch



The basketweave stitch is a dense stitch with an interesting texture which looks like a basket. This stitch is also called the waffle stitch. This stitch is achieved by manipulating a double crochet stitch, first in the front of the stitch of the previous row, and then in the back of the stitch. These stitches are referred to as front post stitch, and back post stitch. 1. Make a foundation piece on which to make your stitches: Chain 22. 2. Double crochet in the 3rd stitch from the hook, and in each stitch of the chain. How to do the front post stitch: 3. Chain 2 and turn. Yarn over, insert the hook under the post of the next double crochet of the previous row. 4. Then yarn over, and complete a double crochet stitch. 5. Repeat step 4 in the next 2 stitches. This gives you a total of 4 front post stitches. (The first chain 2 takes the place of the 1st double crochet.) How to do the back post stitch: 6. Insert the hook behind the next double crochet of the previous row, and complete a double crochet. 7. Repeat step 6 for 3 more times. When you arrive at the end of the row, chain 2 and turn. Repeat steps 3-4 throughout the construction of your project.
