This weeks feature stitch is the Woven Stitch.
The possibilities for this stitch are endless ~ scarves, afghans, sweaters... Because this stitch is suitable for so many different projects, I was really undecided as to what I would make for this blog entry. I finally decided on a basket because I felt that was the most obvious choice. This was my first time knitting with cotton so I think my gauge may be a little too loose, but I like the way it turned out after all.
Row 1: Knit

Row 4: P2, *K2, P2; repeat from * to end
Row 5: Knit
Row 6: Purl
Row 7: Same as 4
Row 8: Same as 3
Repeat these 8 rows
*** Note - when working on a circular needle the front is always facing, so all the even rows will be opposite from the instructions above ***
