8 + 4
The basket weave crochet stitch is a great way to add texture and depth to your project. It’s a reversible stitch, making it a great choice for projects where both sides will show.
The basket weave crochet stitch works up rather thick so light and medium weight yarns are a great choice. However, you can also use bulky and super bulky weight yarns for an extra thick, durable project like a rug.
