Postby fluffysnow » Sun Mar 13, 2016 10:30 pm

hello evryone!!!
i recently saw this pattern and i think is lovely but before i start making it i looked at the pattern:
BASKET WEAVE DROP STITCH PATTERN
Row 1: * K2, yo, k3 * repeat from *to*
Row 2: Purl all stitches
Rows 3 and 5: *K2, p1, k3 *, repeat from *to*
Rows 4 and 6: * P3, k1, p2*, repeat from *to*
Row 7: YO the needle twice and k1 *, repeat from *to*
Row 8a: *P1, dropping the yarnovers as the stitch is worked*, repeat from *to*
Repeat Rows 3 through 8.
INSTRUCTIONS
Back and Sleeves
Working from 2 balls of yarn and holding two strands together, cast on 65 (70, 75) stitches.
Work 4 rows of garter stitch.
Begin working Basket Weave Drop Stitch pattern. At the end of Row 1, you will have 78 (84, 90) stitches. Continue with this stitch count until you reach the sleeves.
the instructions part is confusing...

As I mentioned in my other reply to this issue...try this on fewer stitches first, but on initial reading this looks like a pretty straight forward basketweave (without cables!) and it has dropped stitches inbetween to make the weave more pronunced. So....you make stitches, knit them, then drop them to make an elongated hole at regular intervals. Be aware that this will also make the rest of your knitting loose if you are not used to doing a dropped stitch pattern as the loose stitches will migrate a little. This will take a bit of practice so I would suggest doing a couple of pocket sized swatches to work on pattern and tension and the you can always add them to your garment if you like too.
