"This wrap really accentuates the gorgeous thick/thin texture of the organic cotton yarn in simple stitches. Alternating between stockinette and reverse stockinette squares for a simple and elegant basket weave is not only easy and relaxing to knit but makes a knockout wrap! Adding the twisted fringe adds a pop of rustic flair that melts my heart. It is SO SOFT and comforting against your skin - I could wear this every day. This is a unisex pattern - it is equally gorgeous on a woman as it is striking on a man. Perfect for a special gift!

It is true what they say. Sometimes less is more. The stitches used here to make this beautiful basketweave shawl have been around for ages. Nothing fancy, but the finished project is beautiful.

You can never have too many shawl patterns in my opinion. This pattern will definitely be for me since I have been wanting to make a pretty shawl that will keep me toasty warm when cooler weather returns. I like to do basketweave because it is easy to remember the design, it looks good, and it works up quickly.

This is gorgeous! I love that it's easy and lovely. I've been meaning to knit a shawl. Will have to try this one!

Sometimes just combining simple stitch patterns, like this basketweave pattern, makes for a very pretty effect. This shawl, besides being lovely, also looks a little warmer than some of the very lacy ones. I like the twisted fringe on the bottom - I haven't done that before but will have to try it.

This elegant basket weave of alternating stockinette and reverse stockinette squares creates a beautiful, timeless design. This free knit pattern by Kristin Omdahl is inspirational to us beginners. My knit stitches need a little more practice, but I belive with patience and some time I can create this beautiful shawl.
