ALL FREE CROCHET (allfreecrochet.com)
I found a wonderful site for beginners to learn and view tutorials by a patient teacher named Michael Sellick at ALLFREECROCHET.com. Michael breaks down so many basics of crochet and makes it so easy to learn and understand. One of my favorite stitches is basketweave. Michael does a real nice job of demonstrating this super warm and thick pattern. The post pattern is so easy to follow, so easy to count and is really just double crochet.
Here is a pattern I love and one of my signature baby blankets and baby sneaker booties, by Sue’s CrochetandKnitting.com.
My baby afghan pattern is as follows:
LD Baby Basketweave
starting in 3rd ch from the hook, dc across
sk 1 dc, 2 dc, 5 fpdc, 5 bpdc, repeat to last 2 stitches and 2 dc.
Alternate colors every 7 rows or as many as you would like. Reverse the pattern at the change to create the pattern effect.
Trim with your favorite border or just do a dc border around entire afghan.
with an I hook would be 98 chain, 2dc on each end and ch 2 turn. Do sets of 5 each of fpdc and bpdc as many rows high as you would like. I alternate the colors with each change or reverse on the fpdc and bpdc.
It is a wonderfully warm baby afghan and really looks stunning.
