Princess Basketweave Throw

Lion Brand® Baby's First®


12 sts + 20 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Basketweave pattern.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


Seed Stitch (over even number of sts)
Row 1:
*K1, p1; rep from * across.
Row 2: P the knit sts, and k the purl sts.
Rep Row 2 for Seed st.


Circular needle is used to accommodate large number of sts. Work back and forth on circular needle as if working on straight needles.

Cast on 90 sts.
Rows 1-6: Work in Seed st for lower edge border.

Princess Basketweave Throw Reviewed by Liz Davis on 2014-04-20 ****
I'm a beginner, so this took longer than it should have. It nearly drove me crazy, but it turned out fine. Nice looking. I did it in purple the favorite color of a 3 year old girl.
I got confused moving from the last row of patches to the final rows of trim. I eventually figured it our. (I needed a knit row in there. I think I would try it again. It took slightly over three sks. of Jiffy yarn.
Thanks for the free pattern, I learned a lot. :)
