10 Basketweave Knitting Patterns

These stunning checkerboard basketweave patterns are great for practicing textured stitches!

10 Basketweave Knitting Patterns

The subtle texture and intrinsic charm of the basketweave stitch gives your projects a lovely touch of handmade goodness. The basketweave stitch is not only an easy technique to master, it's a great stitch to incorporate into larger-scale projects (like blankets and sweaters) to break up the piece and add visual interest.

While there is no single, universal version of the basketweave stitch out there, we think that makes it all the better. This stitch is one you can easily control and adjust to the scale of your pattern and yarn. Common versions include the close check stitch (shown below) and the diagonal basketweave, which shows a more complicated iteration of this stitch.
