Big & Bigger Basketweave Wrap

Big & Bigger Basketweave Wrap by Churchmouse Yarns


“In two gauges.”

We wanted a piece with lots of squishy texture and glorious, lavish proportions—one we could fling grandly over our shoulders or wrap up in indoors or out. Then we scaled it down a little, both in size and gauge. But you can knit either size in either gauge so your yarn choices are vast!

We knit a Big Basketweave Wrap in DK-weight Rowan Moordale, and a Bigger Basketweave Wrap in Blue Sky Fibers Extra.

This four-page pattern includes:

  • Color photography by Laura Gehring
  • Special Techniques
  • Swatching for Gauge and Fabric (in basketweave stitch)
  • An easy-to-read chart for basketweave stitch
  • Instructions for blocking and finishing your piece
