PAT­TERN NOTES

If sub­sti­tut­ing yarn, look for an al­ter­na­tive that has sim­i­lar yardage and skein weight. When it states to re­peat a row, al­ways re­peat the re­turn row for that row also. Bas­ket weave pat­tern in­volves al­ter­nat­ing 2 Tu­nisian stitches— Tu­nisian knit stitch and Tu­nisian purl stitch—ev­ery 5 stitches, and then work­ing the re­turn row. Af­ter 5 rows, al­ter­nate the or­der by work­ing a Tu­nisian purl stitch in each Tu­nisian knit stitch and vice versa. Since some rows have stitch counts that do not di­vide evenly into 5, there will be a par­tial rep at the be­gin­ning and end of such rows. Work with Tu­nisian cro­chet hook un­less oth­er­wise stated. Chain-4 at be­gin­ning of round counts as first dou­ble cro­chet and chain-1 space un­less oth­er­wise stated. Join with slip stitch as in­di­cated un­less oth­er­wise stated. Chain-1, join with dou­ble cro­chet counts as chain-3 space un­less oth­er­wise stated. Chain-3 at be­gin­ning of round counts as first dou­ble cro­chet un­less oth­er­wise stated. Last stitch of all Tu­nisian rows is worked un­der 2 loops at edge. De­creases for left neck­line are worked on the re­turn row in­stead of the for­ward row to make the two sides look more alike. This means on the for­ward row you will pick up 1 ex­tra stitch and re­move it in the re­turn row. To work last stitch of for­ward row in de­crease sec­tion of left neck­line: You will see 2 loops worked to­gether from pre­vi­ous re­turn row. Skip the first of these and in­sert hook un­der 2 loops at the edge.
