Diagonal Basket Weave Washcloth with Picot Edge
Ooooh, the knit-geek in me is flat-out swooning over my new favorite stitch pattern, so much so that I immediately used the stitch to knit this diagonal basket weave washcloth and I am all ready to knit a blanket out of the same stitch…like now! Isn't it lovely…the pattern really mimics a woven cloth. The mechanics of the diagonal basketweave stitch is truly like weaving as you skip stitches and work the front and backs of stitches.
And while it looks complicated, it really is an easy stitch to master and actually quite fun to work. On my website, I've prepared a couple of videos that may help you visual learners make your own diagonal basket weave washcloth. These really knit up pretty quickly. If you get started, you could make quite a gift stash for the holidays!
