The Basketweave Blanket is a must make! With the right combination of front post and back post double crochet stitches, you can create this beautiful texture. For this pattern, I use a K (6.50mm) crochet hook, which allows you easily work around the posts of the stitch to quickly work up this pattern. You could make this blanket in any color scheme and the beautiful texture would shine through.

- This pattern starts with a foundation double crochet, I have a video tutorial that can help you get started. But, if you would prefer to start with a chain, see the row 1 alternative.
Chain 65 (113)
Row 1: 1 dc in 4th ch from hook, 1 dc in next ch and each ch across. – 63 (111)
Continue down to Row 2 below.
Row 1: (RS) Foundation Double Crochet 63 (111)
Row 2: Ch 1 and turn, 1 dc in same st, 1 fpdc next 2 sts, *1 bpdc next 3 sts, 1 fpdc next 3 sts; repeat from*, across. – 63 (111)
Repeat Row 2 until the blanket measures 34 (59) inches long, finish on the “RS” of the blanket, then continue to trim.
Rounds 1-2: Ch 1, 1 sc around the entire blanket, placing two sc in each corner, join.
Fasten off and weave in any loose ends.
