It’s time to learn a new crochet stitch! This week I am going to show you the Basket Stitch. This stitch is gorgeous because it is reminiscent of little baskets! It would be a great stitch for an afghan. I hope you enjoy the tutorial! Happy Crocheting!
Basket Stitch Tutorial and Afghan Square
- Worsted weight yarn in any color of your choosing. I used Lily Sugar ‘n Cream* for this example.
- Furls Size I Crochet Hook*
- Yarn Needle*
ch – chain
st(s) – stitch(es)
sp – space
dc – double crochet
sk – skip
t-ch – turning chain
WS – wrong side
Multiple of 6+1
4 stitches & 1 row = 1″
- V Stitch – Work (1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc) in designated stitch
- Double V Stitch – Work (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in designated stitch
Row 5: Repeat Row 3
Row 6-9: Repeat Row 2-5
Row 10-11: Repeat Rows 2-3
This will give you approximately an 7 1/2″ x 7 1/2″ square. You can add a sc border around the square to bring it up to 8″.
