Basket Weave Scarf {Free Crochet Pattern}

During the hustle and bustle days leading up to Christmas, I managed to work up a few crocheted scarves for some of my family members. My four year old daughter, to her dismay, was not one of the people on the recipient list. She had taken inventory of the scarves I had made and whom they had been given to.
Then she did it.
That look. Those eyes. Her sweet little voice.
Followed by the four little words that rang in my ears, convincing me to put aside other things that I needed to do in order to fulfill her darling, innocent request:
"But, where is mine?"
Needless to say, I began looking through stitches to decide which I was going to use. She was a step ahead of me on choosing the color. Green.
"Because it's my favorite!"
I finally decided on the basket weave stitch.
The basket weave stitch is a nice stitch to use when you want texture in your finished product. It is also a fun and interesting stitch. If you tend to multitask (aka watch tv or movies) while crocheting, you may want to choose a different stitch until you become very comfortable with this one.

My little girl loves her basket weave scarf!

Size J crochet hook
Worsted weigh yarn (I used Red Heart Super Saver Paddy Green.)
Latch hook (optional for attaching fringe)


Notes:
Special abbreviations: 
 *FPDC = front post double crochet
*BPDC = back post double crochet

Pattern:
Ch 17
Row 1: Dc in 3rd ch from hook, dc in each ch to end. Turn. (15)
Row 2: Ch 2,  FPDC around next stitch in previous row, BPDC around the next 4 sts, FPDC around the next 4 sts, BPDC around the next 4 sts, FPDC around the next st, dc in the turning turning ch. Turn.
Row 3: Ch 2, BPDC around next st, FPDC around the next 4 sts, BPDC around the next 4 sts, FPDC around the next 4 sts, BPDC around the next st, dc in the turning ch of previous row. Turn.

Continue on: Continue the pattern of  repeating Row 2, Row 2, Row 3, Row 3, until you reach your desired length. Finish off and weave in ends.

Fringe:
Cut equal sized pieces of yarn, approximately 10 inches long. Working with two strands at a time, fold the strands in half and pull the loop through an end stitch of the scarf, then pull the ends of the fringe tightly through the loop. Repeat as desired. Trim fringe so that it is even.


Happy Crocheting!
