Introduction

About this Pattern


If you’re looking for a baby blanket that’s easy to learn and fun to crochet, look no further than the Basket Weave Crochet Baby Blanket. It’s the first baby blanket I ever crocheted and it can be yours too!

The basket weave crochet baby blanket will give you great practice with post stitches which are used to create the basket weave texture. Once you get into a rhythm, the pattern is a breeze to memorize so you can concentrate less and enjoy the process more.

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We’ve prepared a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations you will need to get started as well as a video tutorial demonstrating how to crochet the basket weave crochet stitch and written instructions to complete this project from start to finish.

You will find the full pattern for free here on this page.

However, B.Hooked Insiders will have online access to all B.Hooked patterns ad-free, including weekly office hours for pattern support?

B.Hooked Insider will launch later in 2020!
