How to Crochet a Basketweave Scarf

I like the basketweave crochet stitch because it has texture and depth. It is also reversible which makes it perfect for items in which both sides will be seen, such as a scarf.

In the picture below, you can see the pattern closeup. I really like the look of this.

I would consider this an intermediate-level crochet pattern.

This scarf is 5 inches wide and 71 inches (almost two yards) long. The basketweave pattern occurs 44 times (rows), which is actually 176 rows.

I used almost one skein of Red Heart Super Saver Yarn (482 yards); the color is gray heather. Its weight is 10 ounces. I used a 5 mm hook.

Pattern:

For this scarf, chain 24.

Row 1: Chain a multiple of 24. Then, dc in 4th ch from hook (leaving 3 chains for a turning chain) and in each remaining chain for a total of 20 + 1. Turn. Make sure you have 21 posts (not counting the turning chain on the opposite end and the extra post) so you can do 5 multiples of 4.

Rows 2: Ch 2. Skip the first post (the 21st post) and Fpdc in the next 4 sts. Bpdc next 4 sts. Fpdc next 4 sts. Bpdc next 4 sts. Fpdc next 4 sts. Dc in the top of the turning ch. Turn your work.

Rows 3: Ch 2. Skip the first post (the 21st post) and Bpdc next 4 sts. Fpdc next 4 sts. Bpdc next 4 sts. Fpdc next 4 sts. Bpdc next 4 sts. Dc in the top of the turning ch. Turn your work.

You will transition for *Row 6 to reverse the pattern. You will actually be doing Fpdc in all the Bpdc and a Bpdc in all the Fpdc. You can start to see the alternating basketweave pattern now.

*Rows 6: Ch 2. Skip the first post (the 21st post) and Bpdc next 4 sts. Fpdc next 4 sts. Bpdc next 4 sts. Fpdc next 4 sts. Bpdc next 4 sts. Dc in the top of the turning ch. Turn your work.

You will transition for *Row 14 to reverse the pattern. You will actually be doing Fpdc in all the Bpdc and a Bpdc in all the Fpdc. You can start to see the alternating basketweave pattern now.

Repeat this process rows (transitioning after every 4th row) until your project measures the length you want. Using a yarn needle, weave the yarn tail in the scarf to hide it.

Here is a video showing how to crochet this basketweave scarf.

This scarf in the picture below is actually folded in half and laid in a Z pattern.
