The Basket Weave Stitch! This is diagonal and has a woven, braided
look! Hi, guys! I’m Kristen and welcome to Studio Knit. Today, we are knitting up this beautiful Basket
Weave Stitch and it is a very tight stitch, so I think it is perfect for pillows and other
home decor items. So, we’re going to be using regular knitting
needles and yarn, of course, as well as a cable needle. Now, you can purchase a specific cable needle,
but I’m using here is a double pointed needle that I painted pink to help you differentiate
between my needles. And, of course, we begin with our beloved
slip knot. I have the instructions here on the left and
we are going to be casting on in multiples of two. So, row one, we start with two knit stitches,
so that’s K2 and then we’re going to be repeating between those asterisks there. So, to begin, we slip two stitches. So, we’re going to take this cable needle
and insert it into those next two stitches and we’re going to be holding it to the back,
so that means we’re going to be holding it behind our regular knitting needles. And then we’re going to knit two from the
left needles, so we’re ignoring that cable needle and we’re going to just knit two right
here. Okay, now we bring the cable needle out, and
we’re going to knit from that, knitting two stitches right here. One and two. And now we repeat this pattern between the
asterisks all the way down the row. So, let’s do it one more time a little bit
faster, so we slip the two stitches and we’re going to be holding that cable needle with
those stitches to the back. Okay, now we’re knitting two from our regular
knitting needle on the left. So, we’re knitting one and two. And then we pick up that cable needle and
we are going to knit those two stitches right there! One and two. Alright! So, you are getting the hang of cabling already. This is great! So, on this row, row one, we are finishing
with just a simple knit two. No cable needle, just the regular knit two
that you are used to doing in all of your other knitting. Okay, row two is purling all the way down
the row. And now let’s take a look at row three. So, it’s very similar, but we start by slipping
those two and we hold the cable needle to the front and then we are going to knit two
from our left needle. So, one and two from the left needle and then
we knit two from our cable needle right here. And between the astericks, we just repeat
this pattern all the way down the row. And the last row is a purl row. Okay, so when you have done a series of these
rows, this is how it’s shaping up! And this is how our work looks on the wrong
side, which is also the back side. I hope you are inspired to try this Basket
