FREE CROCHET PATTERN: Basketweave throw

The basketweave crochet stitch intimated me for years! When I found a retail store blanket that had the similar texture I knew I could try to replicate it on my own. I created my first throw in the fall so I used a deep, wine hue. So that left me thinking this was meant for autumn/holiday fireplace snuggles and that was it so when a customer asked to create a custom blanket using Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick in Hudson Bay I was hesitant. When I started working it up I fell in love and saw this piece transform into colorful possibilities year round.
