Meet the Mini Basketweave Stitch, it’s the ever popular Basketweaves little sister! I had so much fun working up this pattern and I think you’ll agree it looks so stunning. So much texture! If you can do Front and Back Post Trebles (US Doubles), you’ll for SURE be able to work up the mini basketweave stitch. This stitch is perfect for interiors projects and autumn/winter crochet due to its lovely thickness especially when worked in a chunky yarn.
