Double Basket Stitch Pattern and Video

Double Basket Stitch Pattern for the Knitting Loom

Double Basket Stitch

This rich and interesting stitch is a mix between a rib and a basket weave stitch. Below is the FREE pattern for the Flat and Round versions and a step by step video tutorial.

I have to admit that translating it was no fun  but once it was done I was tickled pink with joy. I do want to give you a heads up although this design is made up of only knits and purls it can easily get confusing so it’s best to try it only if you are at a minimum an advanced beginner loom knitter or you’re really bold and focused. Pen and paper or stitch counter is highly recommended.

Another warning, it requires a lot of stitches and a lot of rows. You will need 18 stitches across and 20 rows to get the complete pattern and that doesn’t include the edges if you plan to knit the Flat version. A small 4×4 inch square will take you 20 stitches and 60 rows. Can you imagine a scarf. But it would surely be BEAUTIFUL !

Lets Talk Patterns

 

Double Basket Stitch

Double Basket Stitch Reverse Side

Notes: Below are the patterns. The change in font color is only to make this 20 row pattern easier to follow. Use the U-wrap version of the knit stitch. I did a e-Wrap cast-on and added only 2 knit stitches for edges.

Loom: Use a small gauge loom.  I used the KB Adjustable Hat Loom

Yarn: Any yarn will work. I was actually testing this stitch and used Red Heart Super Saver

To Make an 8×8 Square repeat the double basket stitch 2 times with 2 knit stitches (total of 40 stitches) add the edges and knit 119 rows. End with modified basic bind-off.

    I’ve never been able to figure out how to knit in all my nearly 40 years. My little sister can do it brilliantly, a talent I simply don’t have. I can crochet, but knitting I have never been able to figure out. Our parents gifted me with a set of knitting looms for Christmas and I am so excited to try them! Your site is such a gem and full of such great information. I feel like I finally understand what to do!

    Of course I have to fall in love with the most complicated stitch you show. I want my first project to be a pretty cowl/head cover. I feel almost confident enough with your tutorial that I can do it!

    Thank you so much for putting this information and your talents out there for the rest of us to learn from! I will definitely be a frequent visitor!

      Welcome to the family ! Let me know if you have any questions.

  2. Teresa Matson August 23, 2015 at 1:00 pm

    going to give this a try! Only going to do one set and put on edge border. What do you think of a seed stitch side edge?

    • Denise Canela August 23, 2015 at 6:15 pm

      That is one of my FAVORITE edges. Just takes a lot of focus. PLEASE send pictures when your done. Would so love to see that. This is my email denise@loomahat.com and let me know if I can share it with the folks here and the Facebook family. 🙂

    You start first on the left then stop halfway,then you start on the right and stop halfway are you cutting your yarn each time when you reach halfway point.

    • Denise Canela August 16, 2015 at 4:10 pm

      Hi Iceman, at the beginning of the video I explain that I repeat the stitch. I wanted to end with an 8×8 square. To complete this project I needed to do the stitch pattern twice but I didn’t want to explain each row twice which have made the video almost an hour long. Notice that I start with a red rubber band and return on a purple.
      Hope this helps to explain 🙂

    Was my question deleted? If so, why?

    • Carol August 12, 2015 at 12:30 am

      Opps, there it is! 🙂

  5. Christine August 11, 2015 at 8:53 pm

    I’m so excited to try this! Have you attempted out with 2 yarns as 1? Just wondering if it would be too thick with the smaller gauge. Thanks!

    • Denise Canela August 13, 2015 at 8:28 am

      Hi Christine, I wouldn’t recommend it. You don’t need 2 strands with the small gauge. I think a bigger problem then just the way it looks – is the knitting process. Will be way tight and get tighter as you progress. Plus you’re using more yarn then necessary.

  6. Carol August 11, 2015 at 2:53 pm

    Thanks so much for the gorgeous pattern! I would love to try this on a hat. I usually use the KB Adjustable Hat Loom at 68 pegs. Would this pattern work on that in the round? If the stitch pattern is 18 stitches (pegs), repeating it 3 times uses 54 pegs and 4 times is 72 pegs. I’m not sure how that would work. Or maybe I’m figuring it all wrong!…lol

    Thanks for your help! 🙂

    • Denise Canela August 13, 2015 at 8:23 am

      Hi Carol, I’m working on a hat pattern with this stitch for the AHL right now. But won’t be ready for several weeks. I would suggest that you either add a simple stitch pattern in between like 2 knits or 2 purls or end with a partial pattern .
      Hope that helps. And stay tuned for the Double Basket Stitch Hat ……

  7. Carmen Schlenker August 11, 2015 at 8:39 am

    The video is confusing. Are you using 2 balls of yarn? Does this continue on all the pegs? It is a pretty pattern and I would like to use it but it needs to be explained better.

    • Denise Canela August 11, 2015 at 9:10 am

      Hi Carmen, remember that this video is only for the stitch and done only once . About your question on the number of pegs, at the beginning of the video I tell you that I’m repeating the pattern – that’s why I change the color of the rubber band from red to purple. The stitch pattern is 18 stitches (pegs) I cast-on 40 – 2 stitches as edges (4 pegs) and the stitch pattern is done twice (18+18 =36 pegs). When I’m going to the right I stop half way – not to repeat the pattern on the video – same when going to the left – that would be more confusing.

      I’m only using 1 strand of yarn.

      Hope that helps
