Crocheting is a form of weaving yarn by using a hooked needle to create a series of knots on a single strand of wool. Whether you are crocheting a baby blanket or a pot holder, the basket weave pattern is a useful and beautiful stitch. This weave creates a waffle texture to the fabric and only requires using a double crochet stitch. A treble crochet stitch can be used to add length to any crochet project by simply including an additional loop into a double crochet stitch.

    Insert the crochet hook through the loop in the slip knot and create a chain link stitch by pulling the yarn through the loop and repeating this process 22 times.

  3. 3

    Stitch a double crochet after the last chain stitch by looping the crochet hook into the 20th chain and then stitching two more chains.

  4. 4

    Reverse the stitch by double crocheting into the near loop on top of the first four chains.
