Big Basketweave Stitch



Row 18: k all sts Repeat rows 1-18 until desired length

The Big Basketweave Stitch is a really neat stitch that I could see making a scarf with or even a funky looking afghan.  I've personally been thinking of doing a stitch sampler scarf.  Another project to think about at another time.  Right now I'm knitting the Saroyan scarf available on Ravelry.

Abbreviations
CO- cast-on
sts- stitches
p- purl
k- knit
[ ]- repeat instructions inside brackets # of times specified
*; rep from *-repeat stitches between *'s according to the directions listed

CO stitches in multipes of 18 plus 10.  For this swatch I CO 28 stitches.

*Note: I was originally knitting this for a different project but found it was too wide so I decided to make a stitch guide for the Big Basketweave Stitch.  That is why there are 4 rows stockinette stitch after the CO row.*
