How to knit reversible basket stitch

In this DROPS video we show how you can knit a reversible basket stitch. This is a fun textured basic pattern, making both sides of the piece just as pretty, perfect for scarfs or dishcloths.

You need a multiple of 6 sts + 3.
Row 1: *K3, P3*, repeat *-*.
Row 2: *P3, K3*, repeat *-*.
Row 3: *P3, K3*, repeat *-*.
Row 4: *K3, P3*, repeat *-*.
Repeat row 1-4.

You must read the pattern to be able to follow. You’ll find a pattern using this technique by clicking on the picture below.

Salve, potrei sapere come si intrecciano le maglie per chiudere correttamente il lavoro? Grazie.

Je n'arrive pas à voir vos vidéos, alors que la dernière version ADOBE PLAYER est installée sur mon micro.Merci pour votre réponse.

Bonjour Madame Robino, essayez d'aller directement sur Vimeo (lien en page d'accueil), peut-être que vous arriverez à les lire là bas. Et pensez à essayer sur différents navigateurs et à vérifier leur paramètres. Bon tricot !

I love the videos but the need sound to explain some of the patterns-not this on- are kinda hard to follow with no voice explanation. Thanks!
