Double Basket Weave Stitch

Sample knit with Kollage Milky Whey on US Size 3 needles

This is a nice stitch, and even though it is eight rows, it is easy to remember and works up fast.

Cast on a multiple of 4 plus 3

Row 1 and all odd Rows: Knit all stitches  (RS)
Row 2 and Row 4: *K3, P1*, end K3
Row 6 and Row 8: K1 *P1, K3*, end P1, K1

Repeat these 8 rows for the pattern.

Here is the video.  Happy Knitting and Enjoy!

love your stitches. Would you ever consider doing a video for Cross 2 Front (C2F). I'm having a difficult time understanding this stitch written down. Hope you can suggest where to find a video for this stitch if you cannot accommodate.
Thank you again for all your patterns. They are wonderful.

All you have to do for that is slip two stitches to a cable or double pointed needle, hold them in front of the work, knit two from the left needle, then knit the two from the cable needle. You can see this on the Little Plait Cable video I did earlier this month.
