This installment of the Crazy Quilt swatches is the Basketweave from Barbara Walker’s, A Treasury of Knitting Patterns Vol 1, page 16. Barbara opens this pattern, “This famous pattern is notable for its ease of working and handsome appearance.” So true! This pattern is easy to internalize and it looks beautiful in Paintbox Simply Chunky color 310, Coffee Bean.
It’s a lovely texture. I really want to try and this pattern with two colors, purls in one color and the knits in another. Or an intarsia diagonal across the square like the ‘Oscar‘ flag.
