Basket Weave Pattern

It has been awhile since we have posted on the blog. I want to post a hat pattern that a few of us were discussing at the last Holy Needles Meeting. This particular pattern is for an adult, but could easily be modified for a baby.

This pattern is a new challenge, as it uses the front post double crochet (FPDC) and the back post double crochet (BPDC). Using these two stitches creates a beautiful basket weave.

It isn't as hard as it looks. If you know how to use the dbl crochet, you can pick this up. The pattern I used came from a blogger, Diamond Crochet and Crafts. Here is the link to her post with details on this hat HERE.

I personally watched THIS video on YouTube to help me "get" the FPDC and BPDC down.

Good Luck and be sure to share if you try this! Any questions, I am learning right along with you, but will be happy to help.
