6 + 2 + 2 (edge)
The knit basket weave stitch is a great way to add texture and depth to your project. It looks great on both sides, making it great for projects where both sides will show.
The knit basket weave stitch works up nice with a variety of yarn weights. Pair it with a smooth or slightly textured yarn to see the basket weave pattern the best.
