      I made a similar pattern which I believe is basketweave stitch.

      I used a basic pattern so correct number of stitches etc,My design started after row 20 of stocking stitches.

      So first four stitches were done in stocking stitches, then across the row I did five in knit, five in purl to last four stitches which were in stocking stitch. Next row, four purls, then five purl, five knit across row till last four stitches purl those. I did this for five rows so on knit side was knit five, purl five (after the initial four knit) then on purl side they became purl five, knit five (after initial four purl stitches) to last four.

      on row 6, I reversed the pattern but kept the first and last four stitches in stocking stitch pattern. On row 11, back to original pattern.

      I completed twenty rows of basketweave pattern then back to stocking stitch.

      I am just sewing my cardigans up so will post when completed along with the basic pattern used. Any basic cardigan pattern can be used an

      I'm a grandma and a great aunt, so I can't wait until the pattern is available again ! I have two new babies on the way. One in August and one in October.

        Hi Kathryn,
        It looks as though the pattern is not available at the moment - see right hand margin on this page. You could try Ebay. The stitch pattern is called "garter and rib check", or "basketweave" and the directions for these stitches are in Barbara Walkers book "A Treasury of Knitting Patterns". Most libraries have a copy. Find a plain cardigan pattern, do your tension square based on chosen yarn and needle size and off you go. Walker explains in her Introduction. Most knitting instruction books would have the basketweave stitch but Walker explains very well about the tension square and keeping track of each part of the project.
