Basketweave stitch scarf and crossbody bag

At first when I tried to crochet basketweave stitch it seemed really complicated. I’m a visual learner so it’s best for me to follow a video and I learn pretty easy. God forbid for me to see the pattern written down, I get dizzy trying to figure it out 😀 After I got the hang of it I couldn’t make up my mind what to do with it, then I remembered that my husband asked me to crochet something for him and voilà: a scarf was the pretty obvious choice, so I did.

I really liked how it turned out so I thought why don’t I make something for me too? So I created this pretty simple bag. If yo want to make one for yourselves  you’ll find a lot of resources on the internet for basketweave stitch both video and written. The rest is a piece of cake, choose the width and the length of the piece, work it flat until you reach the desired size, fold it to make a flap, attach a button and a strap and embellish the flap with flowers of your choice. It’s best to put some fabric inside for sturdiness. Easy peasy, right?

  1. Both projects turned out very nice, simple but chic 🙂 The basketweave stitch is one that I have not tried yet, but after this I may just have to!
