Basketweave Throw

Lion Brand® Homespun®


12 sts = 4" with Size K hook. 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


Raised DC at the front (FP dc): Wrap the yarn around the hook, insert hook from in front and from right to left around the post of the appropriate st, complete dc.

Raised DC at the back (BP dc): Wrap the yarn around the hook, insert the hook from behind and from right to left around the post of the appropriate st, complete dc.

Ch 112. Foundation Row (WS): Skip 3 ch (counts as 1 dc), 1 dc in each ch to end, turn.

Rows 1, 3, 6, 8:Ch 2 (counts as 1 dc), skip first st, *FP dc around post of each of the next 4 sts, BP dc around post of next 4 sts, rep from *, end FP dc around post of each of next 4 sts, 1 dc in top of t-ch, turn.

Rows 2,4,5,7: Ch2 (counts as 1 dc), skip first st, *BP dc around post of each of next 4 sts, FP dc around post of each of next 4 sts, rep from *, end BP dc around post of each of next 4 sts, 1 dc in top of t-ch, turn.

Rep Rows 1-8 until throw measures approx 50".

Basketweave Throw Reviewed by Anita Heck on 2014-03-19 *****
I am on my second basketweave afghan using this pattern. I use the Tweed Stripes yarn by Lion Brand. Makes it so interesting. My family loves them. I gave the first one to my kids and this one I am making for us. My honey almost didn't let me give the first one away. I changed the border a little. I go around twice using a half double stich. I just learned that stitch and I think it is beautiful. Love this afghan!!!!!!
