I have just uploaded a video to You Tube, it’s the start of my series of tutorials on how to crochet different stitches. There are so many of them, but this is my favourite.
When I am crocheting, it seems quite a normal speed, but when I video myself it is like I have speeded up, how weird.
Anyway, the basket weave stitch is one of my favourites, it is very easy to do once you get going and I just love the pattern, I will be making more items in this stitch, so keep a lookout for those.
I think the basket weave stitch would make a great pattern for a tote shopping bag, so yeah I think I might have a go at that one day, maybe on a smaller hook so the work is tighter.
Right now a have a few blankets on the go, so I will keep you updated as I join the white/blue squares together, I haven’t started joining them together yet, once I have enough I will begin.
