• Size N hook
• Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Yarn Oatmeal
• Large yarn needle
• Ch = chain
• Hdc = half double crochet
• Fpdc = front post double crochet
• Bpdc = back post double crochet
• Sl st = slip stitch
• St = stitch
(Note: this can be made smaller or larger, just make sure that your chain count is a multiple of 6 plus 1)
Row 1: hdc in 2nd ch from hook and in each across. Ch 1, turn. (48 hdc)
Row 2: hdc in first st, * fpdc next 3 sts, bpdc next 3 sts*. Repeat from * to * across to last st. Hdc in last st. Ch 1, turn. (48 sts)
Rows 3-7: repeat row 2. (I realize that normally the rows of a basket weave are alternated but because we're using bulky yarn, it's not necessary to alternate.)
Row 8: sl st in each st across.
Join the two short ends by sl st-ing them together then fasten off an weave in ends.
