Scarf Knitting With Interesting Basketweave Texture


Basketweave scarf knitting is an easy stitch pattern

Basketweave is an easy stitch with many variations that combine knits and purls into a fabric that looks woven.  This basketweave pattern is based on a simple 18-row repeat.
I really do love the textured look of this stitch. There really is no right side or wrong side but I prefer the side that looks wavy as can be seen in these two pictures. Some folks will prefer the other side but it really doesn't matter as both sides look great.
Basketweave will be a nice scarf knitting in winter while keeping you warm and comfortable in cold weather. This is a free knitting scarf pattern found at Knitting Daily. Download here
