If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook (find me @Sewrella!) you may have seen me teasing my mini basketweave stitch recently. It’s a fun woven looking pattern that takes very little focus to create! …that’s my kinda project.
I’d been itching to get something on my hook that was REALLY easy to workup while binge watching Scandal on Netflix, could feel what I was doing without looking at the work, and still create a stunning result. I think this blanket is all of those things and then some!
I created a handy video tutorial for this stitch, because I love ya. If you aren’t subscribed to my channel on youtube, you can do that here (basically it tells Youtube ya love me and want to see more of my videos – it helps me a lot)!
I hope you love this thick, warm-as-a-toasty-fire throw size blanket. Feel free to adjust the sizing to suit your needs too.

Alternate Rows 2 and 3 repeatedly until you have 48 rows, finish off, weave all ends.
This looks super snuggly! What size did your blanket end up being?

Love this. I have done a harder basket weave before. This one looks fun and easy. Can’t wait to buy my yard for it.

Love the blanket and the stitch!! Do you think I’ll compromise the look of the blanket if I use the same yarn but not double up on the strands?
I would use a smaller hook to get the same thickness, otherwise it’ll be very “gappy”!
